mawar untuk ummi…


mawar untuk ummi

Di sudut pintu, aku berdiri malu-malu
Dengan sedikit berjingkat kumendekatinya
Di tanganku, tersembunyi segenggam mawar putih
Lalu aku pun memberikan senyum lebar, saat ia menolehkan wajah padaku
Disusul dengan segenggam mawar putih yang kemudian berpindah tangan padanya
Ia pun tersenyum malu
Aku berseru, “ini mawar untuk ummi”
Ummi kemudian mencium mawar itu dan berkata sambil tersenyum sangat manis, “Wangi. Terima kasih…”
Ummi bilang suka, ummi suka, ummi suka… Aku jadi suka ^_^

Jadi ingat, pertengahan tahun 2008, saat pulang dari silaturrahim ke KKN-nya seorang teman di Gunung Kidul, kusempatkan membeli sebuah bonsai kamboja yang sangat manis untuk Bapak.
Pas lewat rumah penjual kamboja itu, langsung ingat Bapak.
Kuputuskan mampir dan membelinya. Alhamdulillah Bapak masih rajin merawatnya hingga hari ini 🙂

Bapak dan ummi, I Love both of you…

You held my hand to steady me
Till I was ready to make a stand
On my own two feet
While my world was crumbling down

And you tried your best to shelter me
From the coming of the storm
You opened my eyes to see
That all hope was not gone

You held me in your arms
And wiped away my tears
Not even in a million years
Can I ever repay you for what you’ve done for me?

You were there when I felt
That there was no place for me
You were there to show me
How to truly believe
In the miracle of creation
In the good and the bad
Oh how I love you Mum and Dad

You were there to lift me up
When I was far too small
To see a brighter tomorrow
And face it proud and tall

When my head was down you prayed for me
Said I just need some time
You said to spread my wings and fly
Give the world of what was inside

You taught me to try
To do my best to inspire
People of every kind
That’s a gift from Allah
That I can never claim as mine

Oh Allah, bless them
And always keep them safe from harm
Grant them places in Paradise
And Your eternal Salaam
(Zain Bhikha, Mum and Dad)
