What Should Have Been

Temaram lampu jalan menjadi satu-satunya penerangan. Malam itu langit berawan. Rintik hujan mulai turun. Tidak deras, tanpa petir yang sahut menyahut, tapi cukup untuk membuat irama saat air beradu dengan daun, ranting, tanah, juga genting-genting rumah.

Lampu balkon kamar ia biarkan mati. Tidak, Tao tidak sedang sedih. Ia memang suka kegelapan. Membuatnya nyaman dan tenang. Menikmati nyanyian hujan, hembusan angin yang sejuk dengan bau khas tanah yang basah.

Duduk sendiri sambil memangku notebook-nya yang ringan. Tao membuka salah satu folder. Dilihatnya satu per satu gambar tidak bergerak itu. Mereka tersenyum padanya. Memperlihatkan kenangan-kenangan indah setidaknya sejak 3 tahun lalu sampai kemarin. Ya, kemarin. Kemarin kekasihnya baru saja mengatakan “Lebih baik sampai disini saja hubungan kita”. Tidak, Tao tidak sedih.

Senandung hujan membuatnya larut dalam jutaan kenangan. Ia tidak lagi memandangi gambar-gambar yang tersenyum. Jari jemarinya mulai asik menumpahkan isi hati. Tidak puitis memang, tapi setidaknya Tao berusaha jujur.

 

What Should Have Been

 

You left me, a passionate goodbye
The paradise we had is no more
Our memories were so beautiful
It’s a waste to throw it away
Thinking of it now, it was art
Recalling makes me drink in the day
I wonder if you were here
I still can’t forget your habits

Sometimes I miss your smile
I’m also doing okay on my own
Pillow and toothbrush are still here
The photo album became our memory
In your arms I always loved
The dream we saw on the same spot
We should be happy in our own paths
Goodbye my fan, my eternal friend

If I held on to you then
I wouldn’t eat ramen sadly
If we didn’t breakup
If you didn’t leave me
Although our game of love is over
I have one last thing to say to you
Please remember me
Remember this rap to you

The streets we walked lingers
I’m falling down like a leaf
Memories grow in my head
I fall at the passing wind
Goodbye I have one request
Don’t cry with another man
You were with me a long time
Live happily and don’t get sick

 

Kris…
