I can’t sleep tonight, why is she in my head tonight? It was a Ramazan, when she called me late night. I did felt her pain inside but I was helpless to be by her side. That night something did went wrong. With the sun I heard she left this world. You can say whatever you want, I will never believe, even if it is true, that she can suicide. I can still see her body lying on that table, too still, for an energetic girl like her. Nobody did noticed me and I could not look at her dead body being buried in the ground. So I rushed to home, with helpless tears I stayed stone for hours. The sun was shining as bright as we had predicted and we were suppose to go for a swim that sunny day. Yeah, she was a good challenge, too fast and always beat me on water a track or two. I miss those nights talking on the stairways, the funny jokes we burst out and the endless coffee table debates. After all these years, I am still to find a girl to match her taste. No wonder why she is still lingering in my head. So tonight let me say “Goodbye” and may she rest in peace with eternal spiritual light. That unfortunate dark night, I lost a friend, my swim buddy, I guess I can’t complain but she was so young to die.
