Got Time For These

[raffle tickets]
Raflle tickets and raffle draws are everywhere. I’m a person who never fails to exchange my receipts with a raffle ticket every time there’s a raffle in the shopping malls and supermarkets. Always thinking that “sayang rin yan, baka manalo!”. Half-wishing that I would win any prizes listed in that piece of paper. Sometimes, I also get to join promos in the Internet. But through all these years, I have not won a single item. Hayyy. Maybe I’m not lucky. Pero syempre, I would still continue to write my name and affix my signature on those raffle tickets. Who knows maybe one of these days, I’ll get to win!

Well, just maybe…

Today, I remember my cousin Kimo, who passed away 7 months ago. Today, I missed him. But I’m always saying that “sana ‘wag sya magpakita sa akin!” I just don’t want him to… Hmmm, ,maybe in my dreams, “pwede pa!”  Tomorrow, he would be celebrating his birthday. There wouldn’t be celebrations anymore. He’s not here now. He left at such a young age, but I know he had the time of his life.

There will come a day when tears of sorrow
will softly flow into tears of remembrance
and hearts will begin to heal itself
and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy…
and you will hear the whisper of hope.
There will come a day when we will welcome the tears of remembrance as a sunshower of the soul
a turning of the tide, a promise of peace.

 I know he’s already in a place where he would eternally find peace. A place where there is true happiness. A place where pain does not linger. I could only whisper happy birthday’s in the air. I could only offer a prayer everytime I remember him. He may not know this. But I’m sure of one thing, his memories will live forever.

Until then…
