18 Months Old

05/10/2010 § 6 Comments

I watched a little face sleeping,
Eyelashes fluttering so,
I wondered of the dream you were having,
and if Angles were playing there.


I watched a little face sleeping,
Your little mouth was smiling so,
I hope that you are as happy as me,
holding you in my arms.


I watched a little face sleeping,
making sure of the breath you take,
to watch you breathe and keep you safe,
is all that matters to me.


I watched a little face sleeping,
holding your small hand in mine,
five little fingers on each hand,
as one hangs onto mine.


I watched a little face sleeping,
and as I prayed to myself,
I thank God for letting me
watch a little face sleeping.

Sambil membetulkan letak selimutnya tadi pagi, saya memandang si gendhuk yang masih terlelap. Menatap wajah polosnya saat tertidur selalu memberikan keteduhan yang luar biasa. Segala tingkah polah dan celotehannya yang selalu membuat rindu selama berada di kantor, yang mampu menghapus lelah bahkan pada langkah pertama saya memasuki rumah saat pulang dari rutinitas harian yang menguras tenaga. Senyumnya, langkah-langkah kecilnya, pelukan eratnya, dan sebuah ciuman manis yang selalu diberikannya sambil berkata ‘muaaaah’ selalu menyemangati saya untuk cepat-cepat pulang ke rumah.

Dan hari ini, genap 18 bulan ia mewarnai hari-hari kami.  Alhamdulillah. Terus bertumbuh ya Nak. Mudah-mudahan Alloh SWT senantiasa menjagamu, memberikan kesehatan, menjadikanmu seorang shalihah. Amiiin. Luv, Ayah & Ibu.
