I never thought I’d experience swimming with stars. I’ve been to Liwa Zambales last year, but I didn’t fully appreciate its beauty then. But my visit last weekend showed me how great the place was.
Every now and then we’d see some plastic floating but we’d fish that out. Liwa beach is too precious for us to destroy. I realized this when we decided to indulge ourselves with some night dip.
There are mornings when I wake up and wonder if it really happened at all. Or a humid summer night when I can’t recall how you look as you give me a toothy smile while you’re driving. Maybe one of these days, I will not be able to remember how my name sounds like when you pronounce it. When I start to feel this way, I open my pandora’s box and look at the proof that you existed. The happiness, the chaos, and the insanity. You were here. You may have left, but your memories are still here. You are with me, wherever I go.
