An open letter to the one I love

Valentines Day is just around the corner so I thought I should drop a line to you. I don’t know if you would read this but I feel that I should let this feeling out of me. I never thought I would be writing this.., but here goes.

First, I want to thank you for the unconditional love you have given me. Your love has made me the better person that I am now. You have always encouraged me to pursue everything that I’ve dreamed of and you never hesitated to give me a push when I feel down and a little kick in my a.. when I get crazy. It’s amazing how a simple touch, a soft tap on my shoulder and a warm hug from you could uplift my soul and assure me that everything’s going to be all right. Only you could do that to me, and there are no words to describe how I appreciate everything that you’ve done for me. And I want you to know that you are always in my heart.., eventhough you have left me.

Dont worry, I'm not mad. From the very start I knew this could happen. I just never expected it would end this soon. I would have to admit I went nuts. I thought we have made an unspoken vow that we will never run off from each other. I thought what we had is forever. But hey.., I just realized we never used the word forever when we converse. How I wish that what we had was forever..,

Six years has passed and I still haven't gone over it. Sometimes I feel I should just forget the past.., but I cant. How do I say goodbye when I know that you still love me. How can I utter goodbye to the one who has made me the person I am now. I'll never say goodbye.., what we had transcends time, what we had surpasses forever.., what we had is eternal.

Now Valentine's Day is near.., another day I have to spend without you. But I want you to know, now that you're in heaven, no one can ever take your place in my heart. No one else comes close.., no one else will ever replace you.

Happy Valentine's Day Nanay (mom)!!! I love you beyond words!!!
