Another Curtain Closing

Tonight, another dear friend will fly off to a place so far away to marry the man of her dreams. It is so bittersweet. Although we know that she loves him dearly, we can't help but feel sad letting her go.

We started at 6, and now we're down to 4. With every girl that leaves the country, a part of us goes with her. And though we vowed not to cry in front of each other, I know we each silently let tears roll down our cheeks when we are alone.

The 5 of us had our last dinner together last Sunday. When the spinach dip was gone and we'd sipped all of our grape shakes, we readied ourselves to say goodbye.

"We'll see each other next year", she said. We kissed and hugged, and at that moment, we knew that things will never be the same again.

We'll miss you, Misheli.
Wag niyo kalimutan magpadala ng balikbayan box ni Cha sa Pasko.
