My dearest Mama,
It has been a while since I have prepared myself for this inevitable moment. Now, I realized that you can never be prepared nor ready to see someone so dear to you to depart from you and never return forever.
If my tears could only build a stairway, and my memories were a lane, I would walk right up to heaven to bring you home again, my dearest Mama. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness and secret tears still flow, what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know.
Sadness flowed all over me when I came to church earlier this morning to see you were not with us anymore. If I could only bring back time, I would spend every minute of my life to make you happy.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be able to take care of you. Those precious moments being with you, taking you to the doctor, changing your diaper, feeding you, listening to you singing, even though at times I don’t understand the songs, were all precious moments and I will cherish and treasure those memories throughout my life.
Although my heart has been bleeding since your departure, at the same time I kept reminding myself to rejoice, because you are now in a better place where there’s no more pain and suffering; a place where beautiful experiences awaits you. Finally, you will be with Papa, who loved you so dearly. Most important of all, God’s warm embrace welcomes you to the kingdom of heaven.
Ma, I love you and no matter what happens, you will always be in my heart forever. May you rest in peace.
