A few quite eventful thing happen happen to me the last couple of weeks. The most important of which was the passing of my step father, Allahyarham Mohd. Taib, the man my mother married just over a year ago. I wouldn't know how to express how i feel about the loss except that, it shook me and sort of gave me a rude realiti check. More importantly than that however, i am very sad for my mom who had found love again but had lost it in such short a time. I believe however, it is better to have love and lost than not at all and am sure in the brief time that they were together they had given each other joy, happiness and companionship.
Mak if you are reading, I am so sorry for your loss and even more sorry that i cannot be by your side during this hard time. I guess that is my failure as a human being, but know that my thoughts are constantly with you now. i love you mak.
For my muslim friends and blog readers out there who would like to do so, i would be grateful if you would join me in reciting the AL-Fatihah for my step father.
PS. This entry is merely my way of marking this event and the emotions that it has stirred inside of me.
