Appamma

I remember clearly that dreadful morning on September 11, 2005. I woke up from a dream and had a bad feeling about it. Then when afternoon came, I got my first bad news. She was very sick and I was told to fly back home.

She passed away peaceful at 3am, September 12, 2005. Almost exactly one hour after my arrival at the hospital bedside. No doubt, she waited for me.

Honestly, I've never been to the graveyard to visit her. I know where she was buried, but I never had the guts to step inside. I've passed by the road several times, only to look away and cry within my heart. When people mention her, my heart sores. If she crosses my mind, I WILL CRY. Her influence on me is THAT strong. 5 years down the road, and I still can't cope with this feeling.


Happy Birthday Grandma. I wanted you to see me graduate, earn money, own a car, buying my own house, start a family and most importantly, to return your love for me, to take care of you, to stop people from hurting you.. but I guess God has other plans, huh... Well I hope God has prepared a gift for you because I can't send you anything but my prayers. I love you and I miss you the most at times like this.
