This morning I woke up to the news that a couple friend lost their loved one hours before. Suddenly I felt a pang of pain inside me... knocking the breathe out of me, bringing back the sad memories... so overwhelming.
Few hours later, the sky turned dark and it started a light drizzle, so feathery light, as if it is trying to comfort me. After that it started to rain and it poured, as if trying to help me get all my emotions out so that I can feel better again. Heaven, are you trying to let me know that some one up there is heartbroken to see that I am feeling sad?
The wife friend wrote on her facebook a heartfelt farewell message to her father-in-law, she ends the message with this - "I will have that bowl of rice with soy sauce and egg with you one day. This time I will open my bottle of jasmine tea myself." and it made me think so fondly of my late parents.
What would I be doing if I ever meet them again at the other side? A smile creeps slowly up on my face as I envisioned 2 scenes in my mind...
I'm sharing a bottle of Guiness stout with my Dad while we watch the tv program, in silence.
I'm enjoying a hearty chap-pa-lang (a colloquial slang meaning a mixture of things or in this case mixture of several ingredients) porridge and chatting away with Mum.
Till we meet again at the other side Mum & Dad, I am missing both of you now.
Heaven, please don't cry for me. Please tell Mum & Dad that I will wipe away my tears and be strong again.
