In Passing

I called his number. I have been meaning to do this for a long time but due to more pressing things, i kept pushing it aside. An unfamiliar voice answered the phone. It was his dad. He gave me the sad news.

We talked.


Our last meeting was on September 9.

The Hurricane hit on September 13.

On September 19, he passed away.

10 days after he saw me.

I only learned about it in December.


His dad's final words to me, "It was beautiful. He died peacefully, in hospice care. Thank you, very much."

Despite the reassuring words, i know I failed to keep a promise.
