It’s been a while, two months went so fast, I miss you buddy…
I thought it’s easy to move on when even before that fateful day I was always readying myself for the worst. I even had the guts to complacently tell people that sooner or later this death will come. But I was very wrong. Death may seem the end of it all but not the memories especially the happy times. And as I typed this and sipped my coffee in between, and wait for this day to end, I can’t help but miss you and remember how it’s been like last year before August 16, your birthday, and your 40th. 🙂 Your BU mates were equally excited that even days before your birth date they made a special countdown, everyone must’ve been excited for the lunch treat you’ve promised.
The day has come, your workspace had been flocked with multihued balloons, trimmings and candies and a basket of red blooms, and yellow blooms. It was a pretty sight indeed and everyone was giddy as they meet you and greet you, as if facebook greetings weren’t enough and even text messages and calls too.
At lunch time, everyone was treated to a sumptuous feast which your sister Tenie and Tatay dotingly brought all the way from Binangonan. It was so thoughtful of them to really make time. They’re presence made your little party big-time. I envy your cake, the one from Hizon’s, your BU mates ensured you’ll be wowed with all the details of that day. Your 40th birthday was a blast! Something that I wished my team had planned well too, well for me of course. 😀 I can’t account the amount of happiness you had that day, the grinning was ear to ear. And your pink tee gave you a wonderful glow even. The merry making that day was never-ending, it was a real rave and truly significant, something that would be remembered on and on. That even the day after, you can’t help concealed the happiness and got mesmerized again and again on that yellow roses which Carlos lovingly sent. And you endlessly thank the Lord for the forty years of your life, I was happier for you because you passed what they say was the crucial age of 40.
Tomorrow will be your birthday again and I’ll be missing the smile, your silly laughs, your funny face…Minerva, I miss you and your animated presence, I miss you and your calls when we will just talk nonsense and eventually laugh it off, I miss the many times you’ll pass by me, I miss the many occasions we’re happily together. Now that you’d be celebrating it away, may all the cherubs in heaven surprise you tomorrow with harps and singing. Enjoy the colors of heaven –the brightness, the luster that seems to incorporate the sun’s rays, the moon’s beams, the star’s glitter, and out there over the canopy enjoy eternity my friend.
Have fun in heaven! ♥
