in memoriam

Adoracion de Leon Parungao
October 25, 1949 – February 03, 2007
 “But she wasn’t around,  
and that’s the thing when your parents die, 
you feel like instead of going in to every fight with backup, 
you are going into every fight alone.”
  ~ Mitch Albom (For One More Day
and maybe, maybe if thinking about it won’t hurt as much anymore
and writing about it won’t bring as much tears as it does
and maybe, maybe if growing older meant a better ability to cope
and if the passing of time will erase the pain 
and fill the void…
maybe, i’ll just cheer myself with the thought
that you were looking down on us,
and saw my little boy, 
and you smiled…
