No words can express my sincerest thanks to you, my dear. I want to tell you that I love you with all my heart and soul.
You were there in my darkest hours when I needed someone to console me. You were there when I was just a teenager figuring out things. When my first menstruation hit me, it was very painful and I didn’t know what to do. You called mom and led her to me grimacing on the floor. For the whole day, you were beside me on the couch wincing every time I felt pain in my tummy. You were there when my boyfriend broke up with me just because he said things are not working out well. It was heartbreaking because he was my first. You sat by me and waited until I stopped crying. I remember you tugging me and leading me to the refrigerator. You pointed at the freezer and smiled, you wanted me to eat ice cream or you just wanted one for yourself? But that made me smile. I guess you knew me more than anybody else. I remember one time when I was sick with the flu and I was so cold, you cuddled beside me giving me your body heat. It was one of the warmest cuddles I had and it came from you. You were my pill whenever I feel sick and you were my inspiration whenever I got down. I love the fact that you made me your number one priority and even giving up a chance to have your own family, not for the lack of trying but you just chose to be with me. For that, I will forever be grateful. When I got pregnant with my first child, you were there for me and always on the watch whenever I sleep. You wake me up every time you feel that I am in pain from the kick of my son in my belly. You were there one entrusted by my husband to make me feel comfortable especially when he is away for work. I will always be grateful for how you looked at my son while he was just an infant.
And now, as you lay down nearing the end of your days, I will never forget all of the things you did for me. I know that you are old and tired already. I will keep you company just as you did for me. I love you and thank you for your unconditional love and devotion. You reached the end of the road but you will stay eternal in my heart. I am and will be forever grateful.
