Karena aku meminjam laptop anakku untuk mengerjakan sesuatu, tak sengaja di folder My document kutemukan judul file My Mother. lalu dengan rasa penasaran kubuka dan kubaca apa isinya.
My mother’s name is Ratna Yuniati. People call her Ratna. She is the most precious thing I have ever had in my life. She is the best mother in the entire universe. I don’t know how my life would be if I didn’t have my mother. She always takes good care of me. But now, she is in Japan. She is finishing her doctoral program (S3). My mom will come back to Indonesia in December. She is so smart. She works as a lecturer at the University of Indonesia (UI). Biotechnology is her expertise. She studies at the University of Nara. Nara is near to Osaka. I miss her so much. She wakes me up in the morning. She makes the breakfast meal for me. I always pick her up when she gets home from her work.
I also drive her to the train station because she goes to IPB too. She got the scholarship to Japan from IPB and Department of Education. Every weekend I always go shopping with my mom. She used to drive me to school when I was in first grade of Senior High. She also used to pick me up from school. I want to be a successful person to make my mom and my dad proud of me. I also love my father. He is the best guy I have ever known. He always teaches me to do good things in life, and tell which one is bad. I love them. I need them. Now I really miss my mother. I wish I could meet her even for only one second. She’s been there for me anytime I need her. I also want to be there for her anytime she needs me. Nothing could separate us. We love each other. I love you, Mom.

Tak kusangka dia bisa menulis seperti itu. Tak kusangka juga dia mengapresiasiku sebesar itu, karena sehari-hari tak banyak ekspresi yang kutangkap darinya. Cenderung introvert.
Ya Allah tak terasa dia sudah besar sekarang, baru kemarin rasanya kusuapi, kugendong, kuganti popoknya, kutunggui semalaman karena panas badannya…
Terima kasih Allah, sudah Kau titipkan dia padaku
Dia lah alasan aku hidup, dia juga ladang amalku…
