Pourquoi voulais-tu encore donc de moi?
Alors que je quittais toutes ces pensées
Tu ne me voulais que pour ces quelques mois
Pour t’aider toujours à mieux l’oublier
I’ve been reading this book, “The Time Keeper” by Mitch Albom. Just like the rest of his book that I have read before, I found meaningful words. I forgot how great it was to be completely absorbed in a book till I read it. One of the most meaningful phrase I found is how Mitch’s trying to remind us that time is the most precious thing that you can give to people. Because somehow, you’re giving them something you can never get back. Time does not belong to you, and there’s a reason why God limits man’s day, to make each one precious. And I will never forget the lesson I learned from this book. Time itself, I think more important than trust or love or perhaps forgiveness. By time, you gain more trust from people, you get the love, and you forgive those who hurt you. And remember, time heals everything. Since I think, love is the most complicated feeling in this world. And there are times when you feel that you are exerting more love than your partner. So, what’s the best gift that you could ever give to someone you love the most? Its your time. Most people only care about the time they waste with the wrong ones. They forgot that at the same time, that person had given away their time as well. Don’t be selfish, you both are running out of time.
I met this guy couple months ago. When we had lunch somewhere, he saved me a seat next to him, he tried to find a way to start a conversation because I was as cold as ice. I was trying not to break the wall I built to protect my heart from being broken. That’s why we didn’t say much, we just sat there, in silence. Of course, nobody really knows what it actually means to me to finally found someone I could rely on. To finally walking through the streets of Jakarta with someone on my side, I was thinking, it can’t get any better than this. After one year I spent alone thinking maybe I deserve the best so I’ll just wait. But the long wait.. finally comes to an end. I gave him my time, and he gave me his too. Its an overwhelming feeling.
Today I asked him to give me his time, his time for me. I thought maybe I could try to keep it, to make each one precious. But everytime you have me beg for more, I remember that day when you saved me a seat, you gave me your time for the first time in my life, without me even asking.
Whenever you read this, please remember that I will always love you, no matter what. And I’m giving you my time, my forever.
