whenever I see how my nanay and tatay deeply love and adore my little girl Piatot, I get this warm feeling overflowing in my being.
If there is something I could definitely wish for to come true, it would be that both of them will live a long life so long they could even see their apo sa tuhod and apo sa talampakan if deemed possible.
I didn’t get to experience having a lola and lola figure because I grew up living away from them and they left us early. I sometimes feel a pang of jealousy because it would have been nicer to have a lolo and lola around whenever something bad happens (especially during our dark days with Hitler) but well, everything’s better now but if I’d be given a chance, I definitely would have wanted to be closer to them.
Who knows? If there is such a thing called afterlife, we’ll definitely be tight…
