A Ticket to Find Your Soulmate

May 17, 2005

Sometimes I wonder.

Maybe God gave us a ‘ticket’ to find your soulmate.

He is somewhere waiting for you at the airport.

airplanes
take you away again
are you flying above where we live
then i look up, a glare in my eyes
are you having regrets about last night?
i’m not, but i like rivers that rush in
so then i dove in
is there trouble ahead for you, the acrobat
i won’t push you, unless you have a net


you say the word you know i will find you

or if you need some time i don’t mind
i don’t hold on to the tail of your kite
i’m not like the girls that you’ve known
but i believe i’m worth coming home to
kiss away night
this girl only sleeps with butterflies
with butterflies
so go on and fly then, boy

Seorang sahabat gua sedang sedikit patah hati.

Dari siang sampai sore tadi kami berdua menyusuri Jalan Braga. Menikmati es krim di Sumber Hidangan Braga yang tempatnya sangat klasik, mengobrol di depan etalase toko buku Djawa dan mencari oleh-oleh wayang golek. Hey you, si kodok ijo! thanks… it was fun! :-)

Gua termasuk salah seorang yang bersedih saat dia putus. Putus memang menyakitkan. Yep, I traveled to a land called Patah Hati and it wasn’t fun at all.

Some of us go to a land called commitment by plane. Direct flight. Seperti teman gua. Jadian dari smp sampai akhirnya mereka menikah.

Sementara gua harus transit di beberapa tempat untuk sampai ke sana. Yes Kodok Ijo, just like you too. ;-)

I thought he’s the one.
He’s smart.
He made me laugh.
He made me comfortable.
He loved me.
Tempora mutantur, nos et mutantur in illis. Times change and we change with them.
It turned out that he was someone in transit, two years in my heart.
He left.
He had to go to arrive at terminal soul mate.

Saat gua pergi ke Morocco dua bulan yang lalu, pesawat air france yang membawa gua harus transit di dua tempat. Satu jam di Singapur & tiga jam di CDG Paris. Dari Jakarta ke Singapur hanya memakan waktu kurang dari satu jam. Dari Singapur ke Paris, memakan waktu lebih dari 12 jam. It was tiring. Posisi kaki yang menyedihkan dan pegal.

Acara putus dan patah hati membuat gua capek.

Then I decided to go to a land called Commitment. Went there by plane. Lima kali transit dengan sebuah koper berisi love yang over weight, sampai akhirnya Adit menjemput gua di Terminal Soul mate.

Sometimes I wonder.
Maybe God gave us a ‘ticket’ to find your soulmate.
He is somewhere waiting for you at the airport.
Kita tidak pernah tahu berapa kali kita harus transit.
Kita tidak pernah tahu berapa kali kita harus mengalami patah hati.
Kita tidak pernah tahu kapan kita sampai.

One thing for sure, when he proposed me… I know I have arrived to the right destination.
I checked the ticket.
I smiled.
I know God gave me the ticket to arrive at Adhitya‘s heart.

dedicated to: KODOK IJO. Hey! you better check the ticket, Madame. ;-)

UPDATED: TERMINAL, STASIUN, Pangkalan Ojeg dll… is OPTIONAL :-)

Selective Ears

Kemarin sebuah sms masuk dalam inbox. “Lu bisa ke Toko You sekarang? Gue on the way there.” Setelah sebelum-sebelumnya kami bingung menentukan tempat untuk bertemu, jadilah kami memilih makan siang di sebuah tempat makan favorit Bandung yang letaknya di area Dago. She’s my husband…
