Happy birthday to the love of my life. My 24/7. My everything.
I know I cannot say any birthday greeting to you because you believe Islam doesn't celebrate this kind of life event (we might have a different view on this). So, let me share a little story about you here.
You are the one who treats me like a princess
Who never raises your voice to me
Who continuously supports my dreams and encourages I can do it
Who introduces me to nature and it changes my life forever, in a good way
Every time I got home, you prepared hot water for my bath without asking and bought my favorite food
You are the one who excitedly asks how my trip is going and becomes a good listener
Who reminds me to solat 2 rakaat when I tell I face a hard time
Who shows love unconditionally through the endless act of service, and unconsciously, gives me a picture of what kind of partner I want to be with in the future
I feel blessed and lucky to have a father like you
Sometimes I wondered if you are no longer in this life, what my life will be, because I can't live without you. I totally can't. And every time this thought came up, I suddenly shed tears.
Hope you are always healthy and happy, Bapak.
I love you, 3000.
