Letter for my DAD



Dear Pa,

Many people keep on saying that every time they look at my face, I am your duplicate of my generation. -"Ang gwapo mo pala nung binata ka, san kaba nag mana?"  hehehe. However, I still consider it as ironic because even though we share almost the same face in different time, we know that we've got only chunk of similarities because of our differences. Coffee is the least example- you love black, I like white.

Pa, I know when I was a kid you were expecting too much from me and there is a life that you want me to live with in my future but gone were the days and I chose to follow my dream and not the person you want me to become, my apologies I am such a prodigal son. But in lieu with your expectation, I am doing my best in my chosen career and I am happy with it.

Seven days from now your age value will again increase hehe and it seems like yesterday when you were teaching us taekwondo together with my cousins. The time you let me run on the field to check if the kite we did was working right, such wonderful summer days. But I also remember those days we were being forced to do some errands which we actually didn't like, times you shouted us every time we mess up, but I still thank you because all of those things and your being disciplinarian have big impact to what kind of person I am now.

God has been very kind to us and I bow my head to Him for the second life He gave to you. I remember the day you were being sent in the hospital because of motor accident, I don't know what to do that time, the doctor says if you did not arrive an hour earlier your condition could be worse and I am very lucky that your lasingerong friends still help you. Pa, maybe you don't know this but during the time I was looking at you sleeping in the hospital- still unconscious from the accident, I laid my finger on your palm and you held it tight. There was a connection between us, tears flowed in my eyes and I said my prayers. That time, I realized that even we have unsymmetrical likes, you have authoritative personality and strong principles, I am still your son and you're my father. I love you.

I live independently now, I generate my own money and I make my own decisions but I want you to know that I still live with your wisdom, the lesson of being a responsible person and not being a liability to someone. I will keep those piled lessons Pa, though quite sometimes, I need also to break some rules for a reason of satisfaction (bad) but don't you worry I am not worst. hehehe

Now that you've totally recovered, I still wish you to have a good health and happy life. Happy Birthday.

P.s.
Please keep loving Mama like your youngest years together.


YOur Son na Pasaway,
Jei_Son

  3. Wow - this post is awesomely nice!

    I am sure Senyor has his share of tears again. Iyakin yan whenever he read a father and son story.

    Your father is so lucky to have you as his son - though through the course of the story you have had misgivings toward each other. That's pretty normal I guess, it happens in every family. The best thing now is that you've grown mature now, can decide on your own and is very thankful for all the things that your dad had done to you. His ways of discipling you maybe too strong and different from what you expect a father would treat his son. But, it is his ways. Siguro doon lang sa part na yon siya nagiging real father sa inyo.

    No matter how unlikely the paths of growing up with him, he is still your father. You still carry a resemblance of him both in physically and in your ways.

    If only he can read this, he will be thankful for sure. I hope you'll have the great guts to read it to him so that he would know the real status in your heart towards him.

    Happy Birthday to your dad!

  9. I'm sure that your Dad's gonna treasure this letter you made. This is simply a letter of appreciation and love. We've all been pasaways during our childhood days, even I, but the unconditional love of our parents is unbreakable.

    Very nice letter. I'm looking forward to your Dad reading this in the future.

  11. i was here kahapon kaso di ko makita ang comment ngayon lang hahaha sa slow connection ko ata lol

    unang una talaga naging idol natin ang tatay, daddy, papa natin. unang nagturo ng abc, numbers 123 at sinabayan ka ba sa pagtuli mo? hahahaha kasi madalas syempre tatay ang kasama doon eh. hihihihi

    prodigal son man o hindi, hindi naman nagbabago ang tingin ng tatay or magulang sa atin dahil ang pagmamahal nila ay beyond sa salitang pagmamahal talaga.
