Dear Tatay,

I dreamnt of you last night, woke up in the middle of the night crying. It's not the first time though, I have dreamnt of you several times and it always ended that way, with tears. Seeing you even only in my dreams sort of hurts me. Why? It's just that I miss you so much it hurts. I know it's been years but still I never stopped looking back and longing for the day before you left. I always wished I was there, to see you, to talk to you and to hug you. A pang of pain always hits me when I'd think about that day, I've always wanted to come.

I've always looked up to you. You are one of the most significant person in my childhood. And till now I never ceased to hope that one day I could go back to where I left a part of me. It's in your home where I grow up. I've always kept the memories within my heart. The memories of my childhood; of the trees I've climbed, of the goats I've rode, of the chickens and ducks I've fed, of your pet dogs I've played with, and most specially the memories of You, of Mama, of Obet and with everyone I have left behind. I always hold on to that memories and I hold on to them tightly. I never stopped missing you. I know wherever you are right now you are in the place where you rightfully belong, with our creator.

I love you so much and I terribly miss you Tay. You will always be in my heart.

PS. Please guide me and watch over your apo sa tuhod. I know you know he's so much like me when I was young. Very malikot! ^___^ So please do look after him.

Your loving Apo,


What a touching and tender letter to your grandpa. I'm sure wherever he is, he is looking at you with tender eyes and loving heart. Yes, he will guide you and your son in everything you will do and someday, you will be reunited with him in heaven. Til then, just relive the good memories of your childhood days spent with him. Thanks for the nostalgic post. God bless you all always.
