Untuk yang menyayangi orang tua


Saya baru mendapat video nya dari link yang dikirim teman. Video ini nampaknya sudah cukup lama, youtube memuat banyak video tentang “Surat dari Ayah dan Ibu” ini. Tanpa bermaksud lebay, saya tidak cukup kuat menonton video ini, bahkan ketika dipaksakan rasa haru yang kuat datang dan kelanjutannya mungkin tidak perlu diceritakan lagi.

Kenapa begitu terharu dengan video yang mungkin saja sudah sangat lama beredar ini? Karena hampir semua kejadian mirip atau sama dengan situasi saat-saat ini. Video ini mengingatkan realitas sikap-sikap yang sering ditunjukkan kepada orang tua serta sikap-sikap yang orang tua inginkan saya lakukan.

Saya lihat, keinginan orang tua itu kadang-kadang begitu sederhana dan tidak lebih merepotkan dari apa yang sudah kita lakukan semasa kecil. Meski saya rasa sudah melakukan banyak hal untuk orang tua saya semasa mereka sakit dan membutuhkan saya, ternyata itu belum seberapa. Bersyukur kalau masih ada kesempatan untuk mencintai orang tua, dan kata-kata di bawah yang muncul dalam video tersebut (meski artinya saya kurang paham detail) sungguh menyentuh terlebih dilihat sambil lihat tayangan video nya.

Begini kata-kata yang ada di video tersebut :

A Letter from Mom and Dad

My Child..

When I get Old, I hope you understand and have patience with me

In case i break a plate, or spill soup to the table because Im loosing my eyesight, I hope you don’t yell at me

Older people are sensitive . Always having selfpity when you yell

When my hearing getting worse and i can’t hear what you saying,

I hope you don’t call me “Deaf!”

Please repeat what you said or write it down

I’m sorry my child…I’m getting older..

When my knees get weaker, I hope you have patience  to help me get up

Like how I used to help you while you were little, learning how to walk

Please bear with me

When i keep repeating myself like a broken record, I hope you just keep listening to me

Please don’t make fun of me or get sick of listening to me

Do u remember when u were little and you wanted a ballon?

You repeated yourself over and over untill you got what you wanted

Plase also pardon  my smell, I smell like an old person

Please don’t force me to shower

My body is weak, Old people get sick easily when they’re cold. I hope i don’t gross you out

Do u remember when you were little?

I used to chase u around because you didn’t want to shower

I hope you can be patient with me when i’m always cranky

It’s all part of getting old You’ll understand when you’re older

And if you have spare time, i hope we can talk even for a few minutes

I’m always all by my self all the time and have no one to talk to

I know youre busy with work….

When if youre not interested in my stories, please have time for me

Do u remember when you were little I used to listen to your stories about your teddy bear

When the time comes and i get ill and bedridden

I hope you have the patience to take care of me

I’m sorry if i accidentally wet the bed or make a mess

I hope you have the patience to take care of me during the last few moments of my life

I’m not going to last much longer, anyway.

When the time of my death comes

I hope you hold my hand and give me the strength to face death

And dont worry….

When I finally meet Our creator I will whisper in His ear to Bless u

Because you loved your your Mom and Dad

Thank you so much for your care We love you with much love

–Mom and Dad–
