I sometimes wish some people were here right now....my dearest dad who died at just 44yrs of age - wonder what he'd do if he sees me now. Dan my darling friend who committed suicide when he was only 24 - I can still hear his laughter. My maternal grandma who had the biggest heart ever, who died at 83yrs of age - I'm sure she's always giving to others even in Heaven. My 5th grade class teacher Ms.Eva who died at 35yrs of age - her true beauty was something I couldn't get over. Janice my blogger friend who died during childbirth at the age of 25yrs - I wonder if there's a Blogville in Heaven. My last pet dog Judy who died at the age of 6yrs - she used to genuinely 'smile'. My fav aunty V who died at age 60 - I don't know if I'll see such a pretty and talented classical dancer ever again. My childhood friend D who died at the age of 13 - she looked so peaceful in that long white dress. My cousin's baby who died at just 5months pre-birth - I wish I knew him. A total stranger, Banaz Mahmod Babakir Agha who was murdered at the age of 20 by her own father - I wish people paid attention to her fears.
Are you thinking why I'm smiling in this pic? Cos if I show you my tears, there would be a picture of the Nile river here instead. Behind that face there's a sea of teardrops that don't stop falling. If wishes were a bridge, I'd be able to cross it and meet all these people. If wishes were a stairway, I'd be in Heaven right now saying Hi to all these angels. There's an empty chair, unkissed cheeks, an unused plate, a lonely backyard, an undialled phone number, a silent photograph, a piercing memory, an unworn shirt, an unused cradle, long-lost laughter...and my unseen tears. Who do you wish were here today?
