Dear Papa

I never thought I’d write something like this. I never wrote you a letter. Because I know you’ll be here forever.

I know this day will arrive but I never expected it to be today. Nobody did. We were all in a state of shock because it happened so quick. Nobody ever thought you’d leave us just like that.

Pero sabi nga nila, mas maganda yan kasi hindi ka na nahirapan. They said that’s how you want to die anyway.

Sorry if I can’t remember anything you said about death. Hindi ko matandaang nagpahiwatig ka o may binanggit kung ano o paano mo gustong mawala sa mundo. Because I never want to think of it.

Sorry if the memories I had with you were mostly our arguments. God knows despite of it alam mong mahal kita.

I was never the most expressive. Hindi ako pala yakap o pala I love you. Sorry, that’s just me.

Lastly, sorry. Ayaw kong silipin ka habang nakahiga ka dyan. Ayokong makita yung itsura mong ganyan. Ayaw kita tignan. Kasi pagpikit ko, yun ang makikita ko. I want your memories to be alive. Yung kahit masungit ang itsura mo alam kong buhay ka. Yung kahit na lagi kitang inaaway alam ko sa sarili kong mahal na mahal kita at alam kong alam mo naman yon.

Pero Pa, ok naman kami knowing that you’re in paradise. Alam naming hindi kana mahihirapan at mag iisip diyan. You’ve lived long enough to assure that we will all have a good life.

I love you Pa.
