Bahwa Waktu akan Menemukan Cinta

Cerita ini gw dapat dari adik English Private gw. Doi datang sambil majang senyum manis semangat belajar seperti biasa. Bedanya, kali ini doi lagi persiapan ujian praktek di sekolahnya. Jadi, semangatnya kira-kira bertambahlah menjadi kubik untuk mengambil jam malam gw bercinta dengan laptop. Hehehe…
“Ada tiga short story, Kak. Yang mana?”
“Yang paling panjang, biar nilainya bagus. Oke, this one. Read it!” Jawab gw manis.
Sepanjang perjalanan dia baca short storyberjudul The Boy and The Apple Tree, mata gw tertuju pada selembar kertas berjudul “Love and The Story.” Kira-kira, begini isinya.
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day, it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.
Love was only one who stayed. Lovewanted to hold out until the last possible moment. When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?”
Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here fot you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. “Vanity, please help me!”
“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damaged my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you.”
“Oh, Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”
Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.
Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an elder.
So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they  were going. Whey they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who helped me?”
“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.
Oh shit! Kisah ini menggugah hati gw.
Wahai cinta. Kamu itu apa?
Mereka yang sudah kaya terkadang melupakan cinta. Mereka dengan kesombongan materi dan tahta tak peduli pada cinta. Mereka yang menganggap dirinya senang pun tak memikirkan cinta. Bahkan, mereka yang masuk dalam lingkaran kesedihan pun ikut menghardik cinta. Lupa bahwa cinta mampu mengubah dan menyempurnakan segala rasa.
Someone told me,bahwa cinta dapat mengubah pahit menjadi manis, debu beralih emas, keruh menjadi bening, sakit menjadi sembuh, penjara menjadi telaga, derita menjadi nikmat, dan kemarahan menjadi rahmat. Walaupun kadang gw ngerasa apa yang dia bilang itu lebay. But, at the same time, gw ngerasa yang dia bilang ada benarnya juga.
Lalu, bagaimana cara menemukan cinta? Andai kita tahu, waktulah yang menemukannya. Bisa sekarang, besok, lusa, atau nanti. Kapanpun dia datang, maka jangan lewatkan. Karena, cinta begitu indah untuk dilupakan dan dihindarkan.
