I felt the soft breeze as I was leaning against the trunk. The birds were singing, soothing my aching soul.
Its peaceful here… too peaceful.
Four? No five. Every day, as I sat under the tree, I saw five people passing this area. Mang KOSA was always one of those five people. Every afternoon, he passed this place where I was, carrying his tools: his shovel, his sprinkler and plastic gloves.
I straightened up to greet him with a warm smile. He just looked ahead to where he was going, not paying any attention to me. I figured he didn’t notice me.
For so many years now, it had always been this way, everyday… I would never leave this place. This small place I called sanctuary. My home where I waited for the realization of one promise;
“I promise I’d be back.”
The moment I met you, I knew I found the perfect girl; but not at the perfect time. You made me happy in a way that no one else could.
So many things to be done…so many obstacles to overcome. So with an aching heart, I did something I knew I would never regret.
“I promise I’d wait.” My heart, my love, my life… we needed to wait for the right time. As to what time it would be… no one could ever tell…
That solemn promise; it was a promise between two lovers. A promise we had sworn not to break. Not much was spoken after those words had been given, for we both knew how much we meant each word.
And so I waited…
I waited until a month was over…
I waited until almost a year had passed…
I waited for another couple of years…
I waited and waited…
But it didn’t even scare me one bit when you failed to come each day. Yes, I felt pain… Severe pain knowing that I had to spend another day without you by my side. The pain almost killed me, wasn’t it ironic?
Everyday, I was lost.
Everyday, the pain would slowly kill me. There’s just one promise that kept me alive. Loving is waiting. And I didn’t understand that ‘till I met you.
I was lost on my thoughts that I didn’t notice that a car had already parked beside the road. A pretty girl in her twenties came out. Her eye, they were too familiar; TOO FAMILIAR. One look and my knees begun to shake, my hands trembled.
How lonely her eyes had become. She started to quicken her pace towards me and stopped a few feet away. Her eyes mirrored such agony as she looked up to the heavens and kneeled. She bowed her head until it almost touch the ground. She was sobbing as she hugged herself.
“I told you I’d be back didn’t I!” She shouted.
Pain filled her voice and almost in a whisper, she added, “You told me you’d wait… but you didn’t.” She was sobbing so hard. I could do nothing but to sigh.
I went beside her, my face inches away from her face. I looked at her and went closer, my lips close to her ears. “But I did wait. I’m still here waiting for you. I have never doubted you and your love. Thank you for coming back… I LOVE YOU.”
Her eyes widened. I knew she felt my cold cheek when she touched her cheek with her hands.
“I’m still going to wait for you… up there.” I stood up. “You made me happy, you always do.”
A light enveloped me; I gave you one last look and I saw you standing over my grave as you wiped your tears.
I still knew that you’re my soul mate. I just knew it. Fate might have been succeeded in parting our ways… but it never succeeded in stopping my love for you.
I knew that fate couldn’t stop me… for 5 years I had waited for you, and forever, I will wait for you until “our time” comes… The right time.
