House 4 Sale

The sign went up one rainy morning
Just a couple of hours after dawn
Mrs. Hadley peaked out through her curtains
Wondering what was going on

The neighbours said over coffee cups
That nice young couple is breaking up

And in the living room the linen and the crystals
Sit all packed and set to go
I tell myself once more I won’t be here in spring
To see my roses grow
And all the things you tried to fix
The roof still leaks, the door still sticks

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers
Will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

I know you’ve always loved that painting
From that funny little shop in Spain
Remember how we found it when we ducked in
From that sudden summer rain
But I think I’ll keep the silver tray
My mother gave us on our wedding day

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for saleIt was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers
Will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers
Will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers
Will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale, oho
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers
Will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

FOR… DP

Sahabat…, lagu lawas ini bergema di pikiranku kala mendengar kabar tentangmu…
Kala aku mendengar kabar keruntuhan istana kehidupanmu…
Kala kumendengar rumah indahmu akan segera dijual…

Aku mengerti kalau kamu belum mengatakan apa2 padaku…
Aku mengerti kalau kau menunda mengucapkan selamat tinggal padaku…
Tetapi aku tak mengerti apa yang terjadi, sahabat….

Bagiku, kau adalah perempuan yang hebat…
Kau cerdas, berpendidikan tinggi, punya attitude yang sangat baik..
Kau juga sangat dewasa dan bijak, bahkan terkadang kau bagai kakak bagiku.., tempat aku bercerita, berkeluh kesah tentang masalah2ku.., tempat aku berbagi tawa…
Kau juga physically cantik, dan mampu menjaga dirimu sehingga terlihat seperti berusia 20an meski sudah punya dua anak remaja…
Kau juga ibu yang baik buat kedua buah hatimu…, sehingga mereka jadi anak2 yang manis dan berprestasi…
Kau juga homemaker yang luar biasa…, rumahmu indah, rapi bersih dan terawat…
For me, You’re look perfect…, Sahabat.
Aku tak mengerti.. mengapa dengan segala kelebihanmu, dengan segala jerih payahmu yang luar biasa itu…, kau tak juga bisa mempertahankan istana kehidupan bagi dirimu dan anak-anakmu..
Apa yang terjadi sahabat…?

Tapi Sahabat, apa pun yang terjadi… kau akan tetap jadi sahabatku…., meski jarak akan memisahkan kita…
Sahabat…, semoga hidupmu akan lebih indah setelah segala hiruk pikuk ini…
Semoga anak2mu menjadi anak2 yang kuat dan bisa menghadapi tantangan hidup mereka…

Satu hal…, kamu yakin kan, kalau semua ini ada hikmahnya…?
Kamu yakin kan, bahwa ada sesuatu yang lebih indah menunggu di depan sana..?
Seperti lyrics “Why Worry” yang pernah kita bicarakan,
“THERE SHOULD BE SUNSHINE AFTER RAIN”***
