My best buddy, I think I should never say Goodbye to you… Anna Arbol Alberto, a woman of strength and beauty.
Way back elementary days when I met a cute little girl. She stands out of all the girls in our classroom, a woman of everlasting beauty, a stunning image of a beautiful young lady. It’s a decade now, since I first met Anna. She’s been so nice to me in every way even though I’m just an average boy when we we’re in elementary. I never thought that I’ll be making friends with her. At first glance, I would thought that even though she’s very pretty, her personality would be the opposite. I think of that…always. But see… We’re now in High School and she’s the girl that I’m always with. Some students would look on us, that she’s my girlfriend or what, but we’re just best friends. It was never easy to have a friend like her… Some people are very judgmental… That I think had a negative effect on my character. But it’s not. We became so close with each other and it was like heaven and earth became together.
I was so lucky that I had a girl-best friend like her. She knows well everything about me. She know the whole “me.” She knows my angst in life. She knows my dark past about my family, and I was so shock that both us has almost the same past. We shared the mutual pain that we get from our family. We both know the negativities of all our pain and sacrifices that we did for our families. But after all the sad happenings that happened to us in the past, she grew strong, she doesn’t let the past be a burden to her everyday life. I did the same way to recover from our pasts. Now… We just treasure all the happiness and the sadness between the two us that happened inside our friendship within the decade. I just don’t know why all of this happened. God grant we someone who i can share all the miseries and yes, she has the same experience with her family.
She’s so beautiful and so good to me… Then why I didn’t fall in love with her? Many people ask starting from our early years as best friends. Well I know that she’s that kind of beautiful… But she is not the type of girl that I want. I don’t care about her beauty I just love her because we’re best friends there’s nothing more than that. I really don’t know… I am not the type of person that would fall easily with her. Waaaah. I just don’t know. I just want her to be my best friend, as a sister. So that ends the issue…
Friendship built from the ground… Never ending happiness when I am with her, We jam, we cry, we laugh… All the moments will be forever in my memory. I was so happy that I met her. She has the most beautiful laugh. She is a girl of many man’s dream. I would never forget my little Anna. The time that she called me Daddy in Grade 6… I felt that, WOW?? A pretty girl just called me daddy. It was a good hit in my heart. It was heart melting.
It was never easy to say my final words to Verge Andrew Espejo Mirana. It was like writing a eulogy, but its not.
Saying goodbye to your best friend… Its just heart-breaking. The memories that I had with him, it’s overflowing. Everyday that I’m with him, I felt that I had someone that will never leave my side no matter what. … An attentive and having well-known traits. He is a bad kid in the past but now a man of his own good deeds, matured and molded by time. He’s been my best friend and brother for years now. Yes, its very short to prove that he is a real bestfriend, but I think, it was the longest and meaningful friendship that happened for me within a short period of time. He already proved it to me in so many ways, and I’m so thankful for that… God gave me a real person who I can really trust and who I can go in times that I’m in deep sorrow. It just make me feel grieve that I need to say goodbye to a special friend. That I will not be with him anymore. I just couldn’t imagine that I will not be hanging out with our friends anymore… Like the old times and the old ways. He is one of the reason why my high school life was full of fun, Actually, in every important event in the past 2 years, he’s there… The time of my happiness and grieve, he’s been always there for me. Though sometimes he is too busy to hear my dramas and life stories, but he still listens, Verge is “a-one-of-a-kind” friend. He is just the one. He helped me discovered such terrible and wonderful things on one’s student life. Actually you can learn a lot from this person who is well known on reviewing cars, of course, he loves to topic about cars and vehicles. :)
Best memories will always last for a lifetime… Some of the best memories are with Verge. The late night and early morning talks, the coffee jams, the walking, the rivalries, the accidents, the drinking sessions, the smoky sessions, the late night crazy stuffs, the Panganiban and Magsaysay moments, the sleepovers, the music trips, the DPSA CHIBOG moments, the techy and car nazzy convos, the girl and love stuffs, the family things, the bus and jeepney moments and convos… Etc. I’ll miss everything that we did, Verge. You changed a big portion of my future. You changed the lonely “me.” :) You shared to me your joyful spirit.

Haha. Mamimiss takang maray Pugo. I swear. I’ll never say goodbye verge. I’ll just say “See you soon.” Padangaatooon takang maray pugs. Salamat.
Memories… maybe its all in the past, but what if that’s the only thing that will remind you with the people who are the most important to you? Would you just let it be in the past? For me, I’ve always want to reminisce it everyday in my life. Though its only in mind and will not happen anymore, I think it would put me out from thinking that I’ve been alone all of my life. Like Verge, he’s not an easy man to please, but see… We became friends, bestfriends, brother or whatever, most importantly…we shared our lives, and we’re happy for the both us.
So long my friend. I’ll See you soon. I love you so much Verge. “SALAMAT.”
Until the next cup of coffee with you. ;)
