I feel amazed seeing Nisa’s wedding gift, it’s not the thing that amazed me, but what were written on it. The gift was a notebook, standard kind of a gift. What makes it different is that there are three kinds of quotes that were put in it. They said:

“Engkau adalah teman jiwaku yang hilang, setengah diriku yang dipisahkan saat ditetapkan [Kahlil Gibran]”

And there’s another one,

“When you are down to nothing, God is up to something.”

And the last is my fave. I lost my breath when reading it,

“You come to love not by finding the perfect person but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly [Keen]”

Suddenly somehow I feel gifted. I feel blessed by finding him now into my life. Somehow I found out that he’s far from the word “perfection”. But since I and he were united, he still remains imperfect, but the love, the relationship, the affection, the trustworthiness and the faith we both have to then we combined are amazingly be seen as a fully perfected form of reality. As we complete each other, learn to grow tolerances inside us and to throw egos that we’re having. It’s not as easy as saying it. It takes much sacrificing to do such things, but I know I have faith in him. I know that I believe him and I know that I can rely on him. I will cover his “holes” and so does him to mine. That’s supposed of what partners are for, isn’t it?

After the party was done, we sat together in the lobby. Then I said,

“This party is super cool…”, he agreed me, and then he continued,

“I don’t know whether I could make this kind of party in the future for you.”

“What for, I don’t need the package. I need the essence.”

No, Love… I need no luxury. I need the imperfect you, so the imperfect me could tick her heart with yours perfectly. Remember what Gibran said,

“Love is like one soul trapped in two bodies.”

And he didn’t mention about perfection, coz we don’t need that. Perfection will only blunting our sensitivities and senses.

So keep being imperfect Love and I will still know the reason why I should stay beside you.

  1. Aku blom koleksi buku2nya Gibran, kebetulan waktu itu jaman kuliah malay banget mau hunting buku2nya. Secara tmn kosan gw anak sastra Rusia cinta mati ma Gibran, jadi kalo mau baca tinggal ke kamar dia, lirik rak bukunya trus ngomong,

    “Hari ini buku Gibran ya, hehehe”


  2. >_< huhuuu sekarang gibran suka diterbitkan ama penerbit nggak jelas gitu. aku nggak suka. kadang ada gambar kartun2nya. aku pengen yang edisi lama.... penerbitnya siapa yah, lupa aku namanya....

  3. Wah, sampe kwitang juga udah ngga ada ya? Waktu itu sih dulu pas jaman kuliah gw sempet liat buku Gibran di Bubu [nama toko buku di daerah Margonda], tp gw ga bisa bedain whether itu asli atau ngga.

    Emang buku2 lama, apalagi melegenda gitu – sekarang udh susah dicari sih
