My Bestfriend’s Letter

When I was in College, I always have my best friend beside me and not only that, we oftentimes sending notes and letters almost everyday even we always see each other. And our day will never be complete if one of us was absent, she was the one I always tell my problem and my burdens when I seemed not coping up everything. Here is one of the letters she handed me during college days.

The contents of the letter:

December 15, 1997

Dearest Bestfriend,

This is what I like most, we always see each other almost everyday including saturday’s but we still don’t get tired of sending each other messages and sweet nothings. I feel so comfortable and at ease with you, really. Maybe it’s because we’ve been friends since we were in our freshmen days and yet, till now our friendship is keeping on going stronger. With all the trials, hindrances and barriers that comes along. We surpassed it all. Isn’t it so nice to think that were there for each other thru thick and thin. Not only for good things but as well as in bad times too. Really our friendshio rooted well and very deeply. It is built firmly with a very strong base which is understanding, accepting each other for what we are and not for what we have. Sa bagay, wala nga naman tayong mga riches and wealth but at least we’ve got friends. In that aspect, then we can say that “marami tayo nun” You once said in your letter that we have different point of views. I guess its true in a way. Though we have uncommon foresight and opinions, still we manage to listen to whatever opinion that we had di ba? We always give each other a chance to explain our side and that’s a big factor that makes our bond’s grow stronger and stronger. You know sometimes may mga sumpong tayo noh? Napapansin mo ba yun? Yun bang we easily get irritated and we don’t feel like talking to anyone. It’s but natural lang naman, It doesn’t mean that we don’t love each other’s company. Its just that we’re only human and always accompanying to being human is shortcomings. Well, we get along well with it naman di ba? Thats how strong our “pinagsamahan” is. Proven and tested na talaga. Iba talaga pag may bestfriend. If you ever have problem parang magaan lang co’z theres someone whose always willing to listen. Sa mga ka cornyhan, kilig to the bones na stories, heartaches and difficulties in life. It’s so wonderful to spend lots of times with your friend specially if that friend is like you. You know how special you are to me? Let me say this… kahit me tampo ako sayo, hindi kita matiis, though may hinanakit ako sa’yo, uneasy ako pag not in good terms tayo. It really affects my whole day. Gets mo? ganyan katindi dating mo bestfriend. We know we had one thing in common. We’re mababaw,” don’t you think? Yun bang small things can make our day na. Mababaw na bagay lang pero ang bigat na non for us. That’s why we enjoy na our day even without spending much and without even going to special places. Sa Rizal Park nga lang eh, pwede na or sa terminal with matching juice ni Ricky. Ayos na o di ba? One thing more pa pala, the “hinaturay” effect. Daig pa natin si Romeo and Juliet n’yan. But I enjoyed all of those na binanggit ko. That’s really treasured in my heart and mind. till we parted ways and look for our own fortune. That will remain and stay in me always and forever. Co’z were Friends Forever.. Kita pa!!! I may not say this often, Its not that I always forget it, but I can show that I love you in my own special way. Writing you notes of mga sweet nothings is one of my way. But let me say it na rin… I care and love our friendship as much as I feel for the bond between us and specially the person I’m referring in that bond is no other than you…….. Leonardo!

Michael Angelo

You might wonder whose Leonardo in the letter well it was me since we name our group the Ninja Turtles and obviously my best friend is Michael Angelo.
