When was the last time I paid you a visit? I can’t remember the specific day, what more the date. It was so blurry, I’m sorry. ;( You know I love you, both just the same. You both held my hand, when I was in pain.
Oh how I miss you both, I must admit.
The last days of your lives, still vivid in my mind. I never got to say “I love you”. I was only 9 when you left me, you nearly broke me as the next day was my birthday. But I survived! At 17, I lost you too, Grandpa. You both were there, by my side, you were the ones who sent & picked us up from school. You sacrificed your time for us, unfortunately you weren’t there to see us grow up to be what we are today.
I was there earlier today, to see you both. I’ll be there again, tomorrow. I know I’ve shed my tears for both of you, it’s not something I’m able to control. My emotions are all over the place.
