This year, I have lost some people who are close to me including my father. I felt a different kind of pain, something I never felt before.
Bye Bye by Mariah Carey
I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
“I wish I could talk to you for awhile”
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And it’s true that you’ve reached a better place
Still I’d give the world to see your face
And I’m right here next to you
But it’s like you’re gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye
It’s a tradition here in the Philippines to visit our deceased loved ones every first of November. This is the first year we went to the cemetery without my papang. This time, he’s the one we’re visiting. My grandparents are buried here, too. (Read: Grandma’s Girl)
This event is actually a big holiday here. You’ll see a lot of vendors everywhere selling food and other products including this headband.
These last two pictures are kind of unrelated just like some clips from Mariah Carey’s music video for the song. Haha. But seriously, I used to remember my grandparents (from both of my parents’ sides) everytime I hear it. And now, I feel this song more than ever.
This is for my peoples who just lost somebody and that means for everybody
Just lift your head to the sky ’cause we will never say bye bye
Have you lost someone? What do you do in memory of him/her?
