To my grandfather...

3.11.12
Our grandparents are one of those people who can actually mold us to be the kind of person we can be in the near future next to our parents. They are also there 24/7 whenever you need them and welcomes you with open arms. They can be the type of person as well who will spoil you with so much love and care.

My grandparents are one of the most amazing people I have in my life. Nevertheless, this piece is all about my grandfather, whom I missed so much for years now. This is my little tribute to him, although he cannot be able to read this anymore but I know in my heart that he can feel and see what is exactly in my heart at this very moment. This is my little way of thanking him for being a big part of my journey through life back in my childhood years until this very day, wherein during those moments, you never failed in showing us how wonderful you are as a person.

 Lolo, you are not just a great provider and a father to your children but most importantly, you are the greatest grandfather in the world. I am just so fortunate to had a person like you who offered so much love, thus, when you were still with us, you made me feel happy and contented.

I remembered back then, when I was still at a tender age, I used to go to my grandparents’ house right after every school year and spent my whole summer vacation there. It was definitely a lot of fun since they had showered me with so much affection that is very essential to a growing child. That is why when I really had to go back home for the reason that it was already time to go back to school; my parents would had a hard time convincing me to go along with them. All I want during those times was to stay with my grandparents’ home. That is how close I am to both of them.

Moreover, I missed the old days when my grand father used to protect me from anything or anyone that can potentially hurt me. When I am with him, I feel so secured that no one can harm me when he's beside me. I missed the way he tells me how proud he is of me regardless of how little that achievement may be. I missed hearing him utter the flattering remarks about the way I look that I badly needed to feel good about myself and to boost my self-esteem. I will never ever forget how he said to us that he would rather want to carry all the pain that we have to go through in life, than seeing us in a difficult situation and in pain. Reminiscing that moment when he was saying those words while in tears is really heart-wrenching and can bring tears to my eyes.

I just wished that I still had more time to spend with him. But nevertheless, I know he is already happy wherever he is right now as he is now together with the Lord. I just want to tell my grandfather, my “lolo”, from the bottom of my heart, I love you very much. I appreciate all the amazing things you have done for us and I cherished those moments we had when you were still around us. I promise to take care of “lola” for the rest of my life. Your love and your memories always put a smile on my face and you'll forever be in our hearts.Thank you so much for all the love.
