The Art of Marriage

Jum’at malam lalu, saya beli Martabak Mesir di Pondok Kapau Simpang Dago. Saat bayar di kasir, terbaca sebuah puisi indah, The Art of Marriage. Setelah saya browsing, ketemu di sini. Ternyata itu puisinya yang sudah cukup lama.
Ini lengkapnya:

The Art of Marriage

A good marriage must be created.

In the marriage the little things are the big things.

It is never being too old to hold hands.

It is remembering to say ‘I love you’ at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.

It is standing together and facing the world…..

It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is not only marrying the right person.

It is being the right partner.

Wilferd A. Peterson.

This poem was included in a 1961 anthology published by Simon & Schuster, USA, and copyrighted in the name of Wilferd A. Peterson.

    Waduh, saya nggak perhatikan yang lainnya…
    Pondok Kapau yang di Simpang Dago, di Jl. Dipati Ukur-nya.
    Martabak mesirnya enak…🙂
    Ada apa dengan pemiliknya ya ? Kelihatannya banyak pesan yang ingin disampaikan…🙂

    Mungkin sejarah tempat makan itu punya kesan yang mendalam Bu, seperti pemilik toko aksesoris mobil dekat rumah saya yang menamakan tokonya sesuai nama istrinya🙂

    Ya, hal yang indah memang layak untuk terus dikenang…🙂
