Life is a puzzle; we are the clues, and God is the answer.
It’s summer; the sun’s smiling brightly
But autumn reigns inside me.
I feel like a tree who just lost a leaf
Because you left; now inside my heart
Is a terrible heartache.
Help me feel I am no tree
And you are not a leaf;
Instead, you are a river, and I am a creek.
Though we are from different worlds,
We came to travel side by side;
But the time has come that we must sail apart.
I flow on by, as I know you would.
Have faith, let us both believe
That we will intertwine somewhere, someday again.
And when we each reach destiny’s ocean
Trust that I will have a smile for you, my friend.

For my good friends, Chie, Jing, and Tayns who have left this summer: Jing to join her husband in Canada; Tayns to pursue her MA in Japan, and Chie to seek a greener pasture in Qatar. Good luck to all of you. I am deeply saddened that we must live far from each other, but you are always in my heart. Don’t forget I am just a click away. I love you.
