I coudn't help but grew sentimental after my conversation with sheng the other night before we parted ways on our way home. I felt like I have seen that scene for so many times in my life back then. Sheng is leaving for good back to her hometown the same way my very good friend Gladys and my college bestfriend lovely left Davao to be with their family. These three are truly my best buddies in the road I've travelled. I couldn't measure my gratitude to the Giver of life for giving me such opportunity to have met true friends in them.
Just when letting go good friends should become the usual scenario in my life, it seems to me that I must be the goddess of my own castle...must be ever willing to free the birds out of their cage. Hmm..what am I talking here? For the first time, as I sat quietly on a passenger's seat on my way home, I felt alone. Out of the blue, I was starting to feel nostalgic yearning for some important events in the past with special people who are now no longer within my grasp. Ahh!!..change!...how could you do this to me! Why is the pang of goodbye just couldnt go softly without leaving any trace of sadness but an open-mind acceptance for the inevitable! Sitting here infront of the pc monitor at this unholy hour must be one of my longest reflections...in the absence of even the slightest noise in solitude though...because I am thinking of these good fellows who just have to walk away chasing after their very own rainbow...Lord, I miss them!
Now as night falls, I will have wonderful memories with them neatly tucked in my heart...forever.Tomorrow will be a brand new day...it's I,me and myself again unfolding another chapter of life..still welcoming new friends and will soon be strong enough to let them go.... as night falls.
