Everyday, right after I got home. I used to tell a lot about what have been through all day, especially with him. He’s really a loyal listener. His smiles and laugh eliminating fatigue and tired of me right then and there. Hearing his laugh and the way he talk to me even in the middle of the night is one of gratitude that I hope never forget. People are growing old but we often miss that our parents are growing older faster. We often too busy with our own good times, while they are, at home, waiting anxiously. We even demand anything and sometimes forget whether we’ve made them happy or not. We cry and get angry when prohibited . In the other hand, they even get more sad because they can’t follow our will.

So today is my father’s birthday.
The day that I want to avoid actually. I hope times go in slow way. He is my number one man. Whatever he does and whoever he is now, I don’t even care. Dear You The Merciful, grant him health and well-being, protect him wherever and whenever he is, create shades wherever he stands,7 embrace him with your greatest love. Lower my voice to him, beautify my words in front of him. give me a gentle heart for him. Give him your best replies and rewards above his upbringing to me. Love him, as he loves me very much.

Offering a future without telling me which route will we take? Many roads lead us to Rome, you said?
With the shape of the earth like this, I could have lost, you could have a wrong turn, we may not meet.
But Rome was still not moving, you said?
So many things that we will meet on the ways, like for just saying hello, talking a little while, and being friendly as a family. Then do you still continue to the Rome? Why should reach the end of the world when in its middle have given a lot to us?
We’ve promised, you said?
Promises when we were young, when our souls are still free. We’ll go there as without knowing the rules. We’ll carry a lot of supplies, and spend it in the middle of the road. Because optimism, surely, we will get there.
But for the last, dear. Will we get to Rome, at the same time, together?
