Wishful Thinking

Image Source

Every time I hear the sound of a scooter passing by, it evokes beautiful memories. I still run to the door like I used to. I still live with hope. I still can’t believe that you left this world, Dad. Call it wishful thinking, but I still wait for you. I know that you’ll come.

    It's difficult to let go. Some pain leaves deep, indelible impressions.
