Hanggang ngayon, kapag naiisip ko, gusto pading tumulo ng luha ko.
We paid our last respect to sir F last night. ME and the mister and three other friends went to see him for the last time. Kuya C was sharing stories. Two weeks ago daw, dinalaw nya pa si sir. He was still strong, nakakatayo pa. But he’s already sick then. We didn’t confirm ano’ng naging sakit nya and didn’t even bothered to ask his siblings. Maybe, we all knew it was his liver.
They say you can only tell how much a person means to you when they’re gone. Actually, hindi naman lahat. Pero usually, yung intense ng feeling nandun lang kapag alam mong wala na. Ang sakit.
It was our last kasi we can’t come back anymore due to the weekdays. On Wednesday, ihahatid na sya sa huling hantungan.
Kung nasaan ka man ngayon alam kong masaya ka. No more pain dyan sa paradise kahit na mag-inom ka ng mag-inom dyan. Yun ay kung meron dyan yung paborito mong inumin. NTPA will never be the same without you. Pero alam naman natin na meron at merong magtutuloy ng legacy mo. Magpahinga kang mabuti sir Felix. Salamat sa magandang alaala. Until we meet again.
During campaign period back in the day, we had this chant that says: “Dito, sa (insert college), si (insert running student) ang kailangan!”
Sa langit siguro nagsisigaw na sila:
“Dito, sa langit, si David ang kailangan!”
