Selamat Ulang Tahun Ma!

…ada selamat ulang tahun

yang harus tiba tepat waktunya…

-Dee Lestari

counting d stars,,

in d middle of d night,,

spending time,,

just to feel alive,,

breathing deeply,,

exhale,,

inhale,,

lying on d grass,,

smelling after-rain fragrance,,

just to relieve some pain,,

aching,,

in d backbone of mine,,

wanting to disappear,,

just to be by ur side,,

i’m losing ur grip,,

i’m losing my mind,,

i’m missing u,,

right here,,

right above my chest,,

u will always there,,

Happy Birthday, my Dear Mom!
