5 Lagu Hari Ibu Terbaik Pilihanku

Banyak status berisi puisi untuk ibu atau foto bersama ibu hari ini. Ya, hari ini adalah Hari Ibu. Masih tanggal 22 Desember.

Namun, kali ini saya tidak berpuisi atau berfoto bersama ibu. Hari Ibu ini saya ingin mengoleksi lagu-lagu bertema Ibu yang terkeren yang pernah saya dengar – termasuk yang jadul bingits.

So….Siapin tissue ya. Jangan malu jika matamu berair. Mudah-mudahan itu tanda sayangnya kita kepada Ibu.

  1. Iwan Fals – Ibu

Tidak perlu penjelasan panjang lebar, lagu Bang Iwan ini keren pisan. Coba kita resapi liriknya…..mewek kita.

Ribuan kilo jalan yang kau tempuh
Lewati rintang untuk aku anakmu
Ibuku sayang masih terus berjalan
Walau tapak kaki, penuh darah… penuh nanah
Seperti udara… kasih yang engkau berikan
Tak mampu ku membalas…ibu…ibu
Ingin kudekat dan menangis di pangkuanmu
Sampai aku tertidur, bagai masa kecil dulu
Lalu doa-doa baluri sekujur tubuhku
Dengan apa membalas…ibu…ibu….
Seperti udara… kasih yang engkau berikan
Tak mampu ku membalas…ibu…ibu

2. Heintje – Mama

Ini lagu berbahasa Belanda. Jadul sekali. Kenal lagi ini pada saat masih kecil, di mana Ibu masih sering berbicara bahasa Belanda sepatah dua patah kata dengan Tante Elsje, tetangganya. Lagu ini sering banget saya dengar lewat Radio Mara – Bandung, dibawakan oleh Mbak Gulia.

Lirik lagu ini, terjemahan dalam Bahasa Inggris, rasanya cocok sekali dengan apa yang terjadi.

Mama, (you) shouldn’t cry for your boy
Mama, someday fate will reunite us
I’ll never forget
What I had in you
That on earth there’s only one
Who loved me so passionately
Mama,
And when life also brings me pain and suffering
Then I only think of you
It prays for me, oh Mama, your heart,
Days of youth pass by
Quickly the boy becomes a man
Dreams of youth blow away
That’s when life really begins
Mama, I don’t want to see tears
When I have to leave you

3. Edi Silitonga – Mama

Ini juga lagu jadul, yang dulu sering didengar. Yang menyanyikannya adalah Edi Silitonga, penyanyi terkenal era 70-80an, yang telah meninggal Agustus 2016 ini.

Lirik lagu ini sangat sederhana, berulang. Tipikal lirik jaman baheula.

mama…
kembalilah padaku
hanyalah dirimu
harapanku, oh mama
mama…
kembalilah padaku
hanyalah dirimu
pelita hidupku
mama, oh mama…
apalah artinya
hidup tanpa
kasih sayang
mama, oh mama…
betapa nistanya
hidup tanpa
mama….

4. Celine Dion – Because You Love Me

Sewaktu saya search google, saya tidak menyangka jika lagu ini ternyata bisa dikaitkan dengan Ibu. Tapi, setelah dibaca liriknya, oh dear, menyentuh banget. Sila perhatikan liriknya, dan dekatkan dengan apa yang Ibu telah lakukan.

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through through it all
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me
You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me
You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

5. Said Effendi – Surga di telapak kaki ibu

Lagu ini khususon buat Ibu (alm). Beliau menyukai Said Effendi. Pujangga tahun 60an – mungkin. Said Effendie membawakan (dan menulis) beberapa lagu yang sampai sekarang sering dinyanyikan. Meski terkesan jadul, namun lirik lagunya begitu dalam. Tidak perlu saya salin di sini ya. Silakan simak.

Ada satu lagu lagi. Lagu ini adalah lagu Barat, yang sebenarnya tidak bercerita tentang ibu sama sekali. Namun, saya suka sekali musiknya. Makanya, saya ubah syair lagunya sehingga cocok dengan apa yang terjadi – yaitu tentang saat-saat terakhir saya bersama ibu.

Lagu dari Roberta Flack, dengan syair yang diubah, dari judul First time ever I saw your face.


Alangkah bahagianya jika andaikan ada yang mau menyanyikannya untukku.

‘Last time ever I saw your face’ – Saat-saat terakhir aku lihat wajahmu

The last time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun set in your eyes
And the moon and the stars gone with you to grave
At that dark and endless skies, my Mom
To my dark and the empty skies
And the last time ever I kissed your head
I felt the earth move around
Like a trembling heart of your returned son
That was there to see you not there
You were gone at HIS command, my Mom
And the last tine ever I saw you there
I felt my heart so broken down
But I knew your love would fill my world
And last till the end of time, my Mom
And it would last till end of time, my Mom
The last time ever I saw your fave
Your face
Your face
Your face
