it took us almost 7 years to finally meet up again. he used to be a friend, a brother and of course my confidante.
i wouldn't regret whatever that has become of us both, but happy indeed that we're still fine and happy as friends.
you may never know what God has in store for you, right?
he's married, Alhamdulillah. i knew the wife quite well since my college days. most of our friends were quite surprised that things didn't do well for us. but as i said before, i never have regrets. he's just too good a man for me, and i think he finally met the right person to be his wife.
nevertheless, i'm more than happy to acknowledge him as a brother.
we -- me and my siblings made some time to get together with him a few days ago. busy man, as always. came down straight from the office after breaking fast and joined us for supper. he didn't change at all, the bubbly and confident young man. still skinny like forever, only a lot more polished and smart.
it feels good knowing that though we're not destined together, the friendship is still intact. and i have all my respects to this fella for being a true gentlemen by not running away and hide.
i guess we're matured enough to reason and understand the purposes of Allah the Almighty.
thank you, bro.
