For a very long time, I have not seen a real woman cry in front of me.
The feeling is heavy. It is so unbearable to see those tears dropping continuously from her eyes down to her pale cheeks. Her silent sob is deafening. It melts me.
I thought I am used to this because of Pinoy drama and MMK (Maalala Mo Kaya) over TFC but I was totally mistaken.
Perhaps I was away too long from this reality. I tell you, it sent shivers to my bone.
Perhaps it is because I know her husband and knowing that a friend, an officemate is in comatose completes the real drama and the chill.
Perhaps it is the realization that life is very short. (Kanina lang!)
Perhaps it is really hard to see a woman cry.

On Mother’s Day, my friend left – not in another country as an OFW but in another form to a place where we all must go.
