Of death and friendship

“I wonder what’s gonna happen to me when i turn 30?”…

We will never know the answer because a week ago, he left us.  Too soon. Too soon.

His name is David Jhules, but to me he will always be Dibid Jools- my huggable friend. I met him in college and we’ve been friends since then. We’ve had our ups and downs, like a lot of friends do. Despite the distance, time, and the occassional disagreement over Chris Evan’s ass, we remained friends.

People who doesn’t know him would think he’s brash, insensitive and tactless. Well, he was tactless but he was also a big softy. He was caring, childish, funny, and sensitive. He’s a teddy  bear.

I guess you never really know how much you love someone until they’re gone. You never know how much they’ve touched your life until that moment when you realize that they no longer there and you are left with a gaping hole in your heart.

I have been trying to wrap my mind around this. I’m trying to accept and understand  that you are truly gone. I just can’t. I am not ready to say goodbye.

Do you remember the last time we met? We were both broke yet you still traveled all the way from your hometown to see me and be with me until my ferry leaves. That day, you taught me what real friends are.

I envy you, my friend. I really envy you. You are now privy to life’s biggest mystery and you weren’t the one who was curious about it.

If you can only hear us talk about you, you would know that you have been successful. You left us something that made us smile and laugh. You left us something that lifted our spirits. You were an important part of us. You gave us your friendship. You trusted us. You will always be a happy memory for me. You broke my heart when you left but it’s okay. I will patch it up with the memories you left us.

I will miss you, my huggable friend. Only you will have that title, i promise.
