I'm still grieving
It's that time of the year again when people visit their departed loved ones. Flowers and candles are being sold everywhere. It's also the time of the year I can eat Filipino delicacies made of glutinous rice.
This time of the year is not the happiest for me. I'm still grieving for the tragic loss of my parents who died almost 24 years ago. This time of the year brings back painful memories. It reminds me of how difficult life was living without my parents to guide us. Not being able to hug them, not being able to sit on my father's lap, and not hearing their voice.
I feel sad that I didn't get to see their happiness when we finished our education and that we have done as they wished. I feel sad that they didn't get the chance to hold and spend time with their grandchildren. I knew it would have been such a joy if they did.
