My dearest most sweetest aunty, if only I could've spent one more day with you.
People always say things happen for a reason, then why did you have to leave me? What was the reason that you had to go to heaven and leave me and your children?
I can't talk about you without crying.
It's been three years and still I find myself crying myself to sleep.
You weren't sick. You were perfectly healthy.
My mom was talking to you the day you passed away and she didn't know it. What would've she said if she only knew that was the last time she would talk to you?
Then we got the call... The call that changed my life forever. I will never forget the moment my dad came to the living room to me and my sisters with tears in his eyes.
And then told us you died... You left this earth to go to heaven. Then my mom came out of the room with tears in her eyes. Then I started crying and my sister started crying.
You left behind your husband and 4 children, ages 17, 16, 11, and 8.
And two years prior to you passing away you're precious son left us too. At only 12 years old.
Your children are like brothers and sisters to me. You were like a second mother to me.
How would I have sad goodbye? How would I say I love you one last time? How can I tell myself that everything happens for a reason?
Do things happen for a reason?
If things do happen for a reason, why did you have to die and leave me?
I can't say wether things happen for a reason. I used to think that they do, but do they really?
Maybe the reason for you to be in my life was to change me. To shape the person I will become.
If I had one more day with you I would tell you what you mean to me. I would tell you how much I love you. I would tell you that I promise to never forget you.
You were someone I looked up to, and someone I try to be like everyday.
I love you aunty...
