My late father, Allahyarham Ahmad Zaki b. Khalid
Nearly all my earliest memories involves him.
Lots of people said he was eccentric. I think it was just genius.
People say ” No guy would ever measure up to a girl’s father”.
Deep down, somewhat, its true.
He had this favourite song by Elton John, Sacrifice played over and over again when i was little.
For a long time, i thought the song was titled “Coco Heart” because i kept hearing the chorus “Cold Cold Heart” sounded like Coco.
I was like ” Is it chocolate or something?”.
If he had heard my thought, surely he would laugh his laugh ” Hi hi hi hi hi hi!”.
Sounds like “he” exactly repeated. Original laugh ever.
No one i ever met in my life after him laughed like that.
At times i missed him.
“Cold, cold heart
Hard done by you
Some things lookin’ better, baby
Just passin’ through
And it’s no sacrifice
Just a simple word
It’s two hearts livin’
In two separate world
But, it’s no sacrifice
It’s no sacrifice, at all..”
Rest forever in peace. I pray for you everyday.
