Papa, I Miss You


It's difficult imagining you're no longer here.

Sometimes, the busy-ness keeps the thoughts away.

But when everything's quiet.

Thoughts about you come again.

Whenever I see things that remind me of you.

I think of you.

The taps that you installed for us.

The knives that you bought for us.

The houses you bought with your hard work, that we grew up in.

The whatsapp profile of my last sms to you.

Papa, oh papa.

I would like to know, how is it up there, in heaven.

Is it as wonderful as the bible says?

Are you happier?

Are you full?

Is heaven pretty?

Pa, I miss you.

I wish I could have meals with you again.

Hear your thoughts on my business and my ideas.

And banter on theological pursuits and debates.

Pa, I sometimes ask myself what if you had lived

Just a wee bit more

So that you can be with us just a little bit more

Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

As you enjoy your retirement.

Of course, you're now enjoying the best retirement package,

Namely, the Jesus Retirement Package

Where you're with Jesus, Holy Spirit and God

Eating, fellowshipping, and likely working.

Maybe gardening. Maybe fishing. Maybe talking bout taxes.

I don't know.

But in a strange sort of way, I am comforted, at times.

Knowing I can see you again in heaven.

This is a tribute and ruminations of my late papa, Daniel Chua. He was born on 27th Feb 1955, and he was called to the Lord on 24th May 2014 (59 years old). A tribute was created to him at
