Love Letter to The Wind Beneath My Wings

Hari Kamis yang lalu ada sebuah pertanyaan reflektif yang dilemparkan ke teman Domus Cordis di tahun orientasi. Pertanyaannya: “Who is Jesus for you?”

Pertanyaan ini membuat saya terdiam, dan di kepala saya seperti terputar ‘film’ kehidupan saya bersama Tuhan yang bernama Yesus. Dulu sekali, ada seorang pria yang pernah mengatakan kepada saya, bahwa saya adalah ‘his wind beneath his wings’. Buat seorang perempuan, rasanya begitu berbunga-bunga saat ada seorang lelaki yang berkata begitu tentang saya.

Tetapi kemudian dalam perjalanan hidup saya, perjalanan naik turun bersama dengan pribadi Yesus, membuat saya kemudian mengerti, bahwa lebih dari siapapun di dunia ini, lebih dari pria tersebut (yang akhirnya tidak menjadi suami saya hehehe…), ataupun papa dan suami saya sekalipun, lebih dari pangeran manapun yang pernah ada dan saat ini ada dalam hidup saya, saya tersenyum dan dengan hati yang penuh rasa cinta, seperti diingatkan akan hasil refleksi saya selama ini, dan kemudian saya dengan mantap mengatakan di pertemuan DCO Kamis lalu: Jesus for me is the wind beneath my wings”  Yes… He really is!

It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on Your face
You were content to let me shine, that’s Your way
You always walked a step behind

So I was the one with all the glory
While You were the one with all the strength
A beautiful face without a name for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did You ever know that You’re my hero
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle
For You are the wind beneath my wings

It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I’ve got it all here in my heart
I want You to know, I know the truth, of course I know it
I would be nothing without you

Oh, the wind beneath my wings
You, You, You, You are the wind beneath my wings
Fly, fly, fly away, You let me fly so high


Yes, after all we’ve been through dear Jesus. All the anger I spit it out to You, all the ignorence, unfaithfulness, even I left You behind my back. You always there for me. And I know for sure that I will be nothin’ without You.
Fly, fly, so high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank You, thank You
Thank God for You, the wind beneath my wings
