Berhenti menatapku dan mengeluh!
Kau, ya, kau. Berhenti menatapku dan mengeluh.
Perut, hidung, rambut, kulit.. Ah!

Si Ikal berharap ia dapat merombak mahkotanya menjadi seperti yang Si Lurus miliki; sementara Si Lurus terus mengeluh segalanya terlalu membosankan, tanpa variasi.

Si Kuning Langsat yang cerah nan menawan rela meluangkan banyak waktu di bawah matahari demi menjadi kecoklatan saat Si Hitam Manis menghabiskan banyak uang untuk membeli beragam produk pencerah.

Dan kau lihat gadis cantik yang baru saja berlalu dari hadapanku? Ia memamerkan push-up bra barunya dengan harapan bisa terlihat lebih berisi dan menarik perhatian; sementara gadis molek yang merengut tadi berharap ukuran bra-nya bisa mengecil 1 atau 2 nomor karena merasa jengah dengan tatapan brengsek di luar sana.

Kumohon, berhentilah menatapku dan mengeluh.

Tertanda,
Cermin.

Beautiful Coincidence

"There's no way of breaking free, and then I see you reach for me.
I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone, but you stay so cool, my Muñequita.
And even though I know how very far apart we are, it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star.
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times. I'll take you just the way you are."

1. When I See You Smile - Bad English
2. Smooth - Santana ft. Rob Thomas
3. Somewhere Out There - Disney (An American Tale)
4. Just the Way You are - Billy Joel/Diana Krall

Each line is my favourite part of each song, it's funny to see them almost connected to each other.
Free hugs for everyone!

"Now when I look out through your eyes, I'm young again even though I'm very old."

I miss to wake up in the middle of the night to watch Barclays Premier League with him; messing up the kitchen at 2 o'clock in the morning just to find some breads or make cups of tea to accompany our watching.

I do, I do love you. Wish you could hear me well, I would happily say it all straight to you. I miss to hear your story about the war, to see you play the piano and let me sit next to you and ruin the songs you played. I wish I could hear you sing all those Ray Conniff's songs, which have been my lullaby, again.

I'm sorry for I often made you worry. I was 14 and stupid; coming home late without telling you first. I'm sorry if I look angry when I talk to you. I really am. I don't mean to yell at you, I just want you to hear me, to know that I miss you, that you're safe here with me, but you don't even know who I am.

Thank you for teaching me how to play piano, harmonica, and introducing me to those amazing songs. Thank you for all the stories you told, for a thousand books you gave, for every plate of mashed potato that we shared.

I took a Dutch class couple months ago. I know you could speak Dutch well, I just wish I took the class years ago..

You are my special angel, through eternity. I have my special angel here to watch over me.
Special Angel; lagu terakhir di side B kaset Ray Conniff and Friends punya Eyang yang cover-nya warna putih.

Oh, dan lirik yang ada di post title, judulnya I Write the Songs. Ada di kaset yang sama.
