A few nights back I came home rather late, my brother “4 years younger” was staying up for me! As he saw me he hugged me and said: “u scared me!” And went off afterwards without adding a word.
That night I took his car and for some reason my mobile was acting up (I diverted my calls to another number and it was working at the beginning but for some reason I didn`t get any calls later on that night, typical tech-savvy haitham of course!” , we`ve lost my little brother few years back and I guess that`s why he -my brother- got worried.
In any case, I couldn`t sleep that night, not at all! I realized how “things” have changed in my close circle.
I`ve been away from home for some time now and came back just recently.
Haven`t really had quality time with my brother for a long time, I got married and accepted a job in Saudi Arabia, he also got married and started cultivating his way… simply no time!
I believe it was a night that resembled “taking things for granted” as far as I am concerned, sort of an eye-opener if you want.
I love you dear bro. you are truly my rock to lean on.
الله يخليلي إياك
