A Valentine’s Day to Remember
Call it midlife crisis, but I suddenly had the urge to look back and reminisce about my younger days. Oh well, the song “Friends Forever” by Vitamin C is the culprit, I guess. I chanced upon it when a co-member of our Facebook group posted it.
As I listened to the song, scenes of my school days flashed back at me. It was like a journey back in time, a remembering of sorts. My mind was filled with visions of our moments together. I remembered our friendly banter, the study sessions, walking along the school’s halls, rushing to get home works and projects done, bad times, graduation day and all the other things in between.
It’s Valentine’s Day, but unlike the previous years, I’ve chosen this day to pay tribute to the people I lovingly call friends. Some of us are fortunate to see each other once in a while, but most of us just keep in touch with each other, thanks to social media.
To my friends and classmates, this issue is for you. Each one of you has a special place carved in the deepest recesses of my heart. Love you all!
