I am sad now. My friend got died last monday. He was my friend in Junior and Senior High School. His death was caused by motorcycle accident. That day he went out to back study in his university by motorcycle. Whereas I also went back to city on the same day and same road by bus. He studied in the same city with me.
He was one of my third friend who were dead in motorcycle accident. They who had died in motorcycle accident were Dodi, Lukman, and Purnamaridin. Purnamaridin was he who just died on last monday. Purnamaridin and Dodi were very close to one another. They lived in the same village. They went school together, they played around together, they studied together, much thing they did together. Moreover they also died in the same way.
Lukman was my friend in Madrasah and Junior High School. He was my neighbor in our village. He died when he was intending to apply a job as civil servant. He accidentally collided with official car of local government, not too far from our home. They all died in last two years. I didn’t suppose this all.
While I also have a friend who had got motorcycle accident. Alhamdulillah, he was safe. But he got his leg injured seriously. He is my friend in Elementary School, Madrasah, and Junior High School. He lives very close to me, in one complex. His father works at the same company with my father.
Should I blame the motorcycle which had taken so many lives?
Now I can just remember we experienced together in Elemantary, Madrasah, Junior and Senior High School. We ever had quarrel. We had a joke together. We ate together. We played soccer together. And now I’m listening to ‘Evergreen’ and ‘Shallow Sleep’, both songs are by Hyde. It’s all about friend’s death. And I never know what death means? Although sorrow of death is very clear to me.
O Allah please forgive their sin. Relieve and bless them. O Allah remind me to the day I die. Amin.
