It's funny how life always takes you for granted, taking away the people you love before you have a chance to say 'I love you' to them....I felt that way when my paternal grandpa was taken from me in Upper 6, during my mock exam for STPM.....Sometimes I feel that He is being unfair for not letting us spend more time with him, other times I'm glad he's not suffering anymore, because his stroke got the better of him....

It's been a year and a half since my grandpa left me, but I still feel his presence around me when I'm sad, I can still hear his laughter when he carries me when I was young, and I still dream about him giving me ice lollies when he knows my dad's for sure gonna freak (but it's our little secret) =)

It's been hard losing him, but we all have to move on, and make sure we don't make the same mistake twice. Because it doesn't matter if the person you love doesn't love you as much, what matters is that you show to them that you love them, and have no regrets at the end of the day.

A friend of mine lost his grandpa yesterday morning. He slipped and fell in the bathroom, and when they rushed him to the hospital, the doctors told them that he has got a blood clot in his brain, and that he is now in a coma. According to my sis, a blood clot in the brain is very dangerous if not treated immediately. Although I wasn't there, I can feel the agony my friend is going through, because like him, I was there once. I know all too well the uncertainty of not knowing what's gonna happen next, the helplessness you feel when there's nothing you can do except pray.

I just wanna tell him:
Keep your head up, for although he's not here anymore, be sure in the knowledge that he is always watching over you. He will look down upon you from heaven, and life will get better. You have friends who care for you, and we will always be here for you, no matter what.
