A Box of Nostalgia

my son..

Malam ini ketika zaujiy bongkar-bongkar dokumen lama, nggak sengaja nemu ‘treasure box’ yang udah lama banget nggak pernah dibuka.

Isinya antara lain, undangan walimah kami dulu, buku nikah, buku tabungan dan yang paling bikin surprise adalah beberapa barang kenangan ketika anak pertama kami, Harits, lahir.

Ada guntingan rambutnya waktu aqiqah, gelang persalinan, foto-fotonya waktu baru lahir sampai hasil testpack pertama waktu hamil Harits dulu.

Suddenly a bit of nostalgic feeling comes over me. These things cast my mind back to those precious moments many years behind.

I will continue keeping these things.. To recall the good times whenever I long for it. To eternalize that beautiful feeling of being a mother for the first time.

Mungkin nanti ketika anak-anak sudah beranjak dewasa, akan saya perlihatkan kotak kecil berharga ini pada mereka. I’ll let them know that today they may outgrow my lap, but they will never outgrow my heart.

Somesay, time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on. It’s true that baby fills a place in your heart, a place you never knew was empty…

~ Jakarta, on a silent night of November 2015.. To my children, I wrote this for you. I love you.
