I remember Papa..

It's my Life Add comments

I went to see my ENT doctor last February 5 for a follow up check up. It was 11 days after my surgery. I was advised for 2-week voice rest more. I can talk now but should be very minimal. I was told to talk only if necessary. If not, then just keep my mouth shut. :) After my check up, I went to SSS Office to check the status of my Sickness claim application. Unlike other counter, Medical line is not queueing. I was able to finish my business in less than 15 minutes after I arrived the said office.

It was still early in the afternoon then that I decided to visit a mall. No, I didn’t go to Megamall. I went to Edsa Central Pavilion. I plan to visit different bookstores in and around it. I took a jeep ride bound to Crossing United from Medical City. I decided to eat a late lunch at Jolibee. I chose to seat on a chair near the Window. I ate lunch slowly and just enjoy the food.

Since, it was nearly 3PM, the place was not crowded like it used to during lunch time. As I gazed around the fastfood chain, I suddently remembered that my father used to meet his “business clients” in it.

My father died 6 years ago. He died of lymphoma. I wasn’t able to visit his tomb on his death anniversary because it was the same day when I underwent the operation. It was January 25.

He used to sit in the far left corner of the resto facing Highway 54. I took a quick look on the said spot. I usually felt sad when I remember my father. But now, I guess I have already accepted that he is gone, and what I felt then was no longer sadness but regret. Regret because he may not be able to see how our life has improved. He may not be able to watch news, movies from a big flat screen. He may not be able to sing in our midi player. He may not be able to joing our family dates. He didn’t us his girls college graduation picture hanging on the wall. He may not be able to see his granddaughter blossom into a fine girl. Yet, I realize that inspite of all these things, papa is happy now and I would like to believe that he is in a better place now than us.

We love you papa and we will always miss you. Until we meet each other again.

Ciao! :)
