tomorrow i will see my friend cry.

tomorrow i will see her heart break just a little bit.

because tomorrow a love will become distant.


my close friend’s boyfriend will be leaving for canada tomorrow to work for a year. the confirmation to work abroad was, in a way, very sudden. he was informed just two weeks ago and got word to leave for tomorrow just last saturday.

though this has been planned, we all never thought that it would be this soon. all the while, we thought that they would be able to tie the knot before close friend’s boyfriend leaves. but, with this, they would have to wait until he gets back home next year.

close friend told me that though she has prepared herself a long time for this to happen, you will never be prepared enough when the moment arrives. every morning she tells me how she would stop herself from crying, but tears would just fall from her eyes. just last night, she texted me that she couldn’t stop crying.

i can feel her loneliness, her sadness.

but i always tell her, they would be able to get through this. one year is just a short time. the physical presence may not be there temporarily but the love will still be there. and besides, they have been in the same situation way back in 2006 during their first five months of their relationship. and, i know her boyfriend is loyal and loves her dearly. so, definitely there won’t be a problem.

still though, i know that the longingness would be unbearable.


tomorrow i will join my friend.

tomorrow i will witness as she hugs her boyfriend goodbye at the airport.

tomorrow i will see my friend cry.

but, i will be there.

a friend to comfort her.

one more time let me kiss you
close your eyes i'll be on my way"

tell her to be a happy as the days go by. a day that has passed will be a day closer to their reunion.

Commitment is such a complicated word, it puts people in awkward situations, it places them in scenarios they would have never imagined but at the same time, it gives them assurance that one will always be there for the other.

Commitment will always be a complicated word and how one defines it will make the difference.

sabi nga sa going the distance, phone sex. and lots of it.

kidding aside, kaya naman yan kung kaya. as long as they don't forget the promises they made.
