One day full of melancholy, a father went to the beach with his daughter by bicycle.
His daughter kissed and hugged him before
he left for the seashore. Then, she said, “goodbye, my father”.
Step by step he disappeared from her sight. At that moment
the little girl became alone without her father
,and she felt sad.
Then, she rode a bicycle to her house without him.
The next day, she came back to see if her father
returned or not, but he was not there. She was sad and returned home alone again.
Autumn leaves fall, bitter winds howled
and the little girl had become a young woman. She went back and forth to the beach,
climbed to the top of the hill, and she
searched for her father. She never thinks that her father
would never return again;
she only thinks that she misses him.
Unfortunately, she did not find him.she turned sadly away from that place.
Sometimes she went to the hill alone and sometimes with friends in the snow of winter,
in the hot sunshine of summer and in the rains of autumn.
She went day in and day out in all seasons. She never missed a single day.
She imagined telling him in a letter, “My father, I came back again here with my friends
to see if you returned. I did not find you and one of
my friends was calling for me to leave.” She was raising her voice and yelling, “Come on, shake a leg.”
After a long period, the girl became a mother and had a son and a daughter, but was still looking for her father, who left her.
She didn't give up.Her father
talked to her in her imagination through a soft breeze. She answered, “I went back, but I never found you.
Why can’t I see you? Did you die? What happened?”.Time passed, and the girl became an old woman. The world changed,
the trees dropped their leaves and the river dried up. The woman went to the beach with a broken bicycle to see her father
is back or no.
She tried to have her bicycle fixed but it broke again.
The beach water receded and she was walking through dry wheat grass when she saw her father’s boat.
It was half covered with dirt. Then, she climbed into it , closed her eyes, and had a daydream. In her dream,
"She thought, this must have been my father’s grave, and I will never see him again".
When she was in her dream,she heard footsteps coming, and she looked right and left
and saw a person’s shadow. It was her father. She ran to her father
to hug him.
She forgot her sadness, aging, pain and desperation. She had known
she would see her father
again. She hugged her father
as a child
who had not seen him for a long time .
