Rasanya sayang sekali jika tidak mengukir angka cantik itu dalam sebuah tulisan 😁

Hari pertama di bulan Oktober diperingati sebagai hari Kesaktian Pancasila, kita semua tahu itu. Tapi ingatanku sudah agak tumpul terutama jika menyangkut sejarah, maaf. Yang jelas, kejadiannya berhubungan erat dengan peristiwa 30 September 1965, dan ini akan menimbulkan perdebatan panjang… πŸ™„

Jadi … hari ini rumah keluarga kami beraroma rempah-rempahan. Percobaan untuk membuat beras merah menjadi hidangan yang sedap di mata juga nikmat di lidah. Kakak, membuat nasi liwet beras merah, selain daun salam dan batang serai, dia juga memasukkan daun kemangi. Yah, daun yang kelewat wangi malah, karena aromanya, hidangan biasa bisa naik tingkat jadi luar biasa.

Seperti biasa bawang merah dan cabai merah yang ditumis sebentar ikut bergabung disana. Ranjau kecil berbahaya, cabai rawit berwarna jingga dan hijau cerah tak ketinggalan. Setelah matang, nasi dibungkus dengan daun pisang, lalu dipanggang. Yep, jadi ketika asap menguar dari pemanggangan, wangi manis daun pisang yang terbakar mulai menyebar ke seluruh ruangan di rumah kami.Β Dan tidak ada satu pun yang bisa menolaknya.

Bahkan ketika kami selesai makan pun, wanginya tidak mau pergi. Sama seperti aroma ikan asin ketika digoreng, benar-benar awet melayang-layang di udara, atau bau sambal terasi yang menempel di tangan walau sudah dicuci dengan sabun. Tapi wangi daun pisang yang terbakar tidak terlalu menyebalkan, menyenangkan malah. Rasanya seperti berkunjung ke restoran Sunda yang sudah melegenda, berkumpul bersama keluarga.

Jadi selain hari Kesaktian Pancasila, mungkin keluarga kami akan mempertimbangkan untuk membuat hari ini menjadi hari nasi merah liwet bakar πŸ˜πŸ™

Bulan ini dengan pasti akan lebih mengingatkanku pada orangtua. Almarhum bapa adalah seorang purnawirawan ABRI, dan tanggal 5 nanti akan diperingati sebagai hari jadi TNI. Ada cukup banyak kenangan yang selalu muncul jika menyebut tentara dan ayah. Seringnya bersamaan dengan warna hijau dalam beragam gradasi. Dan aku bangga memiliki ayah seorang tentara 😊.

Tapi di bulan kesepuluh ini dua tahun yang lalu, aku kehilangan ibu. Beliau meninggal hari Kamis, dan kami memakamkannya di hari Jum’at yang cerah, tidak jauh dari makam bapa. Dengan sangat mengejutkan aku cukup tenang menjalani proses itu. Yang kentara hanya suaraku yang menghilang, tenggorokan ku sakit dan sepertinya terserang flu berat.

Untuk pertama kalinya dalam hidup ini, aku merasa sendiri, meskipun sudah dewasa dan masih ada saudara kandung, tapi jika tidak ada orang tua, seolah-olah aku tidak punya tempat yang bisa kusebut ‘rumah’. Mungkin secara fisik, berwujud, tapi jiwanya sudah hilang. Meskipun demikian, aku ingin bulan ini menjadi seperti bulan-bulan yang lain. Setiap harinya dijalani dengan harapan tidak akan membawa nama jelek pada kedua almarhum.

Tidak bermaksud untuk mengakhiri tulisan ini dengan suasana murung, aku harap semuanya baik-baik saja, bisa berkumpul bersama keluarga terutama orang tua adalah sebuah anugrah, jangan sampai kita menyia-nyiakan momen itu. Terima kasih banyak sudah meluangkan waktu untuk melihat-lihat blog yang sederhana ini, membaca tulisan remeh temeh dan puisi-puisi ‘s words’Β , juga berkomentar, saya benar-benar menghargainya πŸ™πŸ˜Š

Selamat bulan Oktober 😊

Ini agak sedikit memalukan sebenarnya, segera setelah menulis tulisan di atas, langsung tertidur dan sayangnya tertunda hingga hari ini 😁

treasure by the cure (an interpretation)

and its like a long lost treasure, i found this song played on my shuffled music player.

actually i didn’t know that i had this song, while its been there all along in my music folder, where hundreds of them been kept very nice and well =D

tonight when this song was played straight to my ears through the headphones,

the sound of music was so Cure, the voice was so Robert Smith, and the words are … hm i’ll let you decided yourself, here it is,

“Treasure”

She whispers

“please remember me

When I am gone from here”

She whispers

“please remember me

But not with tears…

Remember I was always true

Remember that I always tried

Remember I loved only you

Remember me and smile…

For it’s better to forget

Than to remember me

And cry”

“remember I was always true

Remember that I always tried

Remember I loved only you

Remember me and smile…

For it’s better to forget

Than to remember me

And cry… ”

***

among the other music that i”ve listened to from the cure, this lyrics is quite short, there’s only one verse and one repeated refrain. that what makes it simple, straight to the point, easy to remember and as clear as the words that someone special would whispered to your ears.

words of love will always sounds poetic, whether its beautiful that makes it lovely, or a little bit harsh that makes it funny, however we tend to be positive on it. but these words of love is about losing someone, its sad but true.

to me this song tells us about a relationship of two people, you could say lovers, in moments of saying goodbyes. i dont know what makes them got separated, because the song gives you the impression that the couple are in love with each other, so much, but something makes them apart.

from the very beginning the singer told us about the words that the girl whispered to him. it describe how his girl felt about this break up. she seems to care and loved the boy very much cause she said and beg to be remembered after she’s gone and away from him, but not with tears.

so she wants him only to remember the happy times they’ve spent together. however this wasn’t easy because its hard to remember someone that we love very much, while they’re not with us, without tearing our heart and makes us cry.

her last messages is, well to me these words insisted how she wants to be remembered for those great moments with him. she’s always true and honest with him, she’s always tried to give the best in this relationship, and the most important thing is she loved only him. so she really hoped to be remembered with a smile, and once again, not with tears.

the part that touches me very much, is when she said “for its better to forget than to remember me and cry”. so i think she knows the situation very well, that this farewell wont lead them anywhere but only to sadness.

there is no “I” that refers to the singer in this song, there is no words that stated the point of view or emotional feeling from the leading part, the subject whose been doing monolog in this song, or in other word the “boy”, or else the “he”. =D …

well anyway, this song also tells us that there is this boy who is recalling someone in his past, but not so very long a go. cause his melancholy and ‘talk like’ singing, flat notes, not too high, actually quite low, shows that he still grieving for this love lost.

when i listened to robert’s voice, he’s always gave me that dreamy feeling, i dont know how to described this haha … but it seems that he always reminiscing something that he will never had, his voice tells us that he had been lonely all this time, and pretty tired with it, but he just get along with it, and he’s moving on somehow.

the music also plays a big part in shaping the emotions to whoever listen to this song, well at least to me =D

the cure played such a tearing your heart tune, this melodramatic melody keeps repeated all the time, it reminds me that something that we kept inside, something that we wish to forget, something that we know it’ll only bring us sorrow when we remembered it, but we kept on recalling it, cause it really means a lot to us …

this heartbreaking situation is such an emotional debris for every one of us …
