On Bus Station

2 years ago

She was one of the children on the street. Singing from bus to bus. Really just like other children on the street. If I have some coins, i will give her. Not every time. She is not really pretty and her voice is not ear-friendly. But so many are like her. So, she is just one of the children on the street.

It was almost midnight. I was in a hurry looking for bus to go home. I saw her. Sitting alone among so many people in bus station. Weeping and crying. She was pregnant. My eyes stuck on her, but my legs were keep running to catch the bus coz it might be the last bus that night to take me home. When my bus left the station, she also moved away. O my God. She is paralyze now. O my God, what happened to her. O my God, i did nothing. She made me petrified.

Could not find her at bus station. Could not get her out of my mind. Clearly remembering her tears and whirly face. God of my soul. You are God of her soul. Reach her for i can not reach her. Embrace her coz i know You have no heart to let this 13-year-old girl alone .

Dia salah satu anak jalanan. Ngamen dari bis ke bis. Sama seperti anak-anak jalanan lainnya. Jika aku punya receh, aku memberi kepadanya. Tidak selalu. Dia tidak begitu cantik. Suaranya tidakbegitu enak di telinga. Tapi banyakyang seperti dia. Dia cuma salah satu dari anak-anak jalanan lainnya.

Sudah hampir tengah malam. Aku tergesa-gesa mencari bis untuk pulang. Aku lihat dia. Duduk sendirian diantara kepadatan terminal bis. Terisak dan menangis. Hamil. Mataku terpaku padanya tetapi kakiku terus bergerak menuju bis yang mungkin bis terakhir malam itu yang bisa mengantarku pulang. Saat bisku bergerak meninggalkan terminal, iapun bergerak menjauh. O Tuhanku. Dia sekarang cacat. O Tuhanku. Apa yang telah menimpanya. O Tuhanku. Aku tak berbuat apa-apa.

Tidak dapat menemukannya di terminal bis. Tidak dapat membuangnya dari pikiranku. Tergambar jelas tangis dan wajah takutnya. Tuhan jiwaku. Kau-lah Tuhan jiwanya. Raih ia karena ku tak mampu meraihnya. Rangkul dia karena ku percaya Kau Tuhan yang tak akan membiarkan perempuan 13-tahun itu sendirian.
