Papa

5:54 PM

It's not really the first time that he's going out of the country.
But it's going to be the first time he's going to be away for a long time.
I grew up with a "workaholic father" who would get up very early in the morning to go to work and go back home very late at night.
Sometimes, we would wake up in the morning without him and sleep at night without seeing him.
But he would still teach me and work with me with my Math home works if he had time.


Because he was always busy back then, I’m used to not seeing him or missing him. Even when one time he was sent to China to work for a month, I still did not missed him. Though she, she, and he missed him.

Teen life came and I was seeking for someone or something. Back then, I can’t understand what was I really looking for but I found someone who replaced that lost something.


Then, life became so complicated. Time for me ran so slow. I had caused pain, I lost trust, I was hurt.


When realization came, the one I was really looking for is already with me.


I just had hard time figuring it out.


Father blamed himself. I felt guilty.


Life changed starting then.


He was still the “workaholic father” but he managed to find more time with us.

Now, greener pasture was found out of the country and he must leave.

But hey, thanks to technology.





 This time, i'll miss him. :)
