November 20

It has been a year since he left us.

My, wouldn't it be wonderful if he is still around. I would have imagined him walking to class with those grins around his thick lips every morning, in his first studying year in this engineering school. How proud I will be to see just another Mechanical Engineering student to become, steadily walking around the campus ground for knowledge.

I did not have many things to talk about him, but all I could have said is, I still get the emptiness; the longing, the crave to see him at times especially like this one. I owed you and I do still, over past courage and bravery you had shown to me in assisting my difficulties trying to help a loved one.

I still owe you a dinner trip to Ipoh. It will never happen eh buddy?

I did take your advice on things and I have tried my every best to keep precious valuables of mine from leaving me though some of them eventually did. I took my best shots at everything, never really leave any detail at all.

I still hope to teach you some of the engineering materials that you might fancy to know.

But you have went away, so far away. At times, I had thoughts that I'd rather follow you too, after all these torments I oftentimes receive on a daily basis. But I must say that, the courage that you showed me n the past prevented me to; it keeps telling me that this road does not end here, yet, at least not yet.

I would like to take this moment to thank you so much, dearest Imad, for all the things you did to keep me happy for the rest of the days even since you're gone. Never I would again see you, but I must assure you that since the very beginning, you are always remembered.

Thank you for showing me the value of a friendship, of respect, courage and bravery, and thank you so much for doing the only thing you did for me before that changed me a lot into what I am today.

But I am so sorry that I have failed you in the end.

I am sorry.
