Selamat ulang tahun, Ma

Satu-satunya kata-kata yang terpikir olehku adalah "terima kasih."

Terima kasih untuk--benar-benar--semuanya.

Sekalipun aku dedikasikan seluruh sisa hidupku untuk mama, tetap aja gak bakal ada apa-apanya dibanding dengan apa yang sudah mama lakukan buat kami.

Gimana kalau kita dengarkan satu lagu? Aku rasa lagu ini pas banget.

Don't Forget To Remember Me
By Carrie Underwood

18 years have come and gone
For momma they flew by
But for me they drug on and on
We were loading up that Chevy
Both tryin' not to cry
Momma kept on talking
Putting off good-bye
Then she took my hand and said
'Baby don't forget

Before you hit the highway
You better stop for gas
There's a 50 in the ashtray
In case you run short on cash
Here's a map and here's a Bible
If you ever lose your way

Just one more thing before you leave
Don't forget to remember me'

This downtown apartment sure makes me miss home
And those bills there on the counter
Keep telling me I'm on my own
And just like every Sunday I called momma up last night
And even when it's not, I tell her everything's alright
Before we hung up I said
'Hey momma, don't forget to tell my baby sister I'll see her in the fall
And tell mee-ma that I miss her
Yeah, I should give her a call
And make sure you tell Daddy that I'm still his little girl
Yeah, I still feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be
Don't forget to remember me

Tonight I find myself kneeling by the bed to pray
I haven't done this in a while
So I don't know what to say but
'Lord I feel so small sometimes in this big ol' place
Yeah, I know there are more important things,
But don't forget to remember me
But don't forget to remember me

Aku gak akan lupa. Janji.
