To Her–Whom I Loved and Would Want to Love Again
October 14, 2010 1 Comment
Tomorrow, a town celebrates her feast day.
Tomorrow, a saint is remembered for declaring that God alone is enough.
Also, by tomorrow, someone will celebrate her birthday.
I still remember that fact. Abi siguro ninyo, o dili, niya, nga nakalimtan na nako ang maong adlaw.
No, I have not forgotten anything. I will never forget a thing.
I still remember greeting her that day–when we heard each other’s voices for the first time–in what would be the beginning of our story.
Now that we are already worlds–literally and figuratively– apart, I could only relish the very feeling of a first love; a love perhaps that not even my philosophical inquiries could even answer.
It was that love which consumed every part of me. It was, I believe, my best experience of love.
Sadly, I screwed. Very hard.
Now, as I remember the joys we had, I only wish for one thing:
To have her back.
I hope she enjoys her birthday tomorrow.
