Why do you love me?

Pertanyaan ini adalah pertanyaan yang hampir tiap malam ditanyakan oleh anak perempuanku ketika aku menemaninya hingga tertidur.

Seperti biasa, sebelum dia tidur aku selalu mengucapkan,
“I love you, Sweetheart”

Dijawab,”I love you too, Ayah.”

Dan disambung,”But why do you love me, Ayah?”

Awalnya aku jawab,”Because you are beautiful, Sweetheart.”

Eh malah dibalas,”How if I’m not beautiful?”

Good question. Aku mikir lagi, terus aku jawab,”I still love you, because you are smart, Babe.”

Ternyata masih ada sambungannya,”And if I’m not smart?”

Waduh, pertanyaan menohok. Ternyata memang nggak bisa dijawab. Dan akhirnya aku jawab,

“Sweetheart, I love you because you are you. I love you how the way you are, and will always love you forever.

Sometimes I was upset with you. But it didn’t mean that I don’t love you. I just don’t like what you did, and I didn’t want you to do that again. But I love you and will always love you.

I can’t answer your why question, but I know that I will always love you forever”

Dia akan tersenyum, dan kemudian bobok.

Eh tapi ya besok2 lagi ya dialog di atas diulangin lagi, lagi dan lagi
