happy birthday to your mom

i can still recall that time when you asked me to accompany you to buy a gift for your mother. i wonder whether she likes the lipstick or not. you left too soon, never told me.

i can still recall that time when you asked me to type that “i miss you” text to your mother. because you can’t put your ego down.

i can still recall that time when you said that she was really happy after you finally hugged her goodbye. you’ve never done that for years and she wanted you to do that again.

i can still recall that time when you called her, right in front of me and said, “selamat ulang tahun ya, ma.”

i never had a chance to meet her. i’m glad you met mine.

and i should’ve forgotten those things by now.
