Saying goodbye to a peach tree.

I once had a peach tree. Peach trees are rare in Malaysia, perhaps even non-existent. But I had my own personal peach tree.

It was a very special tree. If I had any problems or when my mind is messed up, I'd go to my peach tree and find solace there. When life gave me lemons, my peach tree gave me the sweetest peaches there is. It made the overwhelming sourness of the lemons go away.

One day, I went to my peach tree. When I arrived, I saw my peach tree all fenced up, behind a metal fence with barbed wires. On the fence there was a sign. It read:

"Goodbye Faisal, I can't be your peach tree anymore"

Before I went away, I hung a small piece of paper on that metal fence. It read:

"Goodbye Peachy. Thank You for being there for me whenever I needed you. I'm gonna miss you. Love,Booky"

So I left my own personal peach tree. As I walked away I smiled a faint smile, and a single drop of tear fell from my eye.

But then I paused. I turned around and looked back at my own personal peach tree. I smiled again and quietly whispered to myself..

"You'll be safe here"
