Dear Lolo Carding,
I miss you! Hindi man kita nakilala ng husto at hindi man kita nakasama ng matagal, sana kilala mo pa din ako. Lagi mo po kami babantayan. At never ko po nakalimutan yung sinabi mo sakin na wag kaming mag aaway-away magpipinsan.
I was so young when you left us. I still remember the day I last visited you in the hospital suffering from emphysema. I didn’t knew what happened next after I visited you. Parang bigla na lang sinabi sa’kin na nasa heaven ka na. And I didn’t know where was that during those days. I saw mom crying on your burial. Me, I just sat there staring at everyone. Hindi ko naiintindihan kung anong nangyayari.
But now, I wish you’re here. Siguro inaalagaan na kita ngayon. Siguro sobrang close ako sayo. Pero wala eh. Sobrang bata ko pa nung nawala ka. But I know you’re okay there with God.
Lolo, please whisper to God all my heart’s desire. Tell Him that I’ll allow Him to drive my wheels and put things into the right places in His time. Be our guardian angel, lolo. You will always be in my heart. I love you!
