me, The Flower of Purwokerto


i got many emails from my ex BF few days latest, here... i just wanna share his email! And warn you guys: if you love someone, be bold to fight to get his/her love! do it now and don't wait until tomorrow, because tomorrow maybe can be late!
And when it's too late, the beautiful words can't take her/his back to you!!!

Here, his email for me, seems like a poem:

-The Flower of Purwokerto-

The Flower of Purwokerto.
she is a human but also like a plant.
She doesn't ask for much to shine and bloom.
Just light, some wind and water.
Light like a heart that cares for her,
wind like arms that carries her,
and love like water that nourishes her.

The Flower of Purwokerto,
treat her well and she will give you all her beauty,
will stretch to shine proud at your side.
Her outside beauty for all who can see.
But her true beauty is when you close your eyes
and listen when the wind blows and strives at her neg,
you can hear her whisper 'yes'.

The Flower of Purwokerto,
once you have her heart and she stretches
and shines at your side, she needs the water,
wind and light. Never let her without water,
walk a thousands miles for water if you need to.
Climb the highest mountain for the wind.
Reach out for the sky to have light for her every single day.

The Flower of Purwokerto,
a flower once she shined at your side,
you will miss her, if she is gone.
You will try to replace her, but you can't.
You will try to feel right, but it won't.
If she is gone, things feel wrong,
and you realize you should have walked a thousand miles,
climbed the highest mountain and reached out for the sky.

The Flower of Purwokerto,
she is a human but also like a plant.
If you ever have the chance to see her, feel great.
If you ever have the chance to hear her whispering 'Yes'
while the wind strives at her neg, fix your heart.
If you ever have the chance to see her bloom,
when see is happy, know this is it.
If you ever have the chance to carry her with you,
know it's what you want to do all your life.

The Flower of Purwokerto is called Irene.
... and this is my advice. Never let her without
water, wind and light. If you do, you will realize
that will want to walk a million miles for the water,
climb higher than any mountain for the wind,
and reach out beyond the sky up to the stars to give her light.
Because these are still small things for having the flower of Purwokerto.

For Irene,
written from a known heart that discovered Irene the flower.
Maybe unknown for writing a poems, but a known heart.

Hanya yang Membahagiakan yang Akan Aku Bingkai


Terkadang ide menulis itu datangnya tiba-tiba, mendadak gitu seperti kebelet pup kala kena macet di jalan misalnya. Pun dengan ide tulisan sekarang, ketika sedang lihat-lihat fesbuk, tiba-tiba salah satu temen saya ada yang upload foto jenazah ayahnya, turut berduka dear ... semoga amal ibadahnya deterima oleh Tuhan Yang maha Esa, amien.
  • Seketika, saya teringat akan almarhum ibu saya, dan seingat saya ketika meninggal hingga pemakamannya tidak ada foto, mungkin ada yang memotret tapi sampai sekarang saya sama sekali belum pernah melihat foto-foto itu, dan memang tidak ada yang dicetak. Bukan kami tidak sayang ibu, saya, dan keluarga sudah pasti sangat menyayangi beliau. Tapi kok kenapa saat-saat terakhir tidak diabadikan melalui foto? Karena saya tidak mau merasa sedih ketika mengenangnya, kami tidak mau membingkai kenangan-kenangan yang menyedihkan, cukup gambar-gambar indah semasa hidupnya saja yang kami simpan, dan ketika kami membuka dan melihatnya kami tersenyum bahagia mengenang masa-masa bahagia itu.
  • Ketika kita mengingat hal-hal yang menyedihkan dan menyakitkan membuat kita seketika mersa 'sakit' dan sedih, maka berhentilah mengingat hal-hal tersebut. Ingatlah hal-hal yang membahagiakan, yang mampu membuat kita tersenyum dan bahagia ketika mengingatnya. Simple kan? Bahagia itu sederhana, hanya dengan mengingat hal-hal yang pernah membuat kita bahagia meski telah berlalu, rasa bahagia itu sama seperti saat kita mengalaminya dulu.
