a dedication to him whom i love

had a conversation through the messenger with my sister and she told me that she saw a patient of her who looked exactly like our late grandpa.. she was a malay lady, rather old and dehydrated and was on the IV fluid.. according to my sis, she (the malay patient) had the same feature and eyes and behave somehow like our late grandpa... I donno... somehow reality just struck me and again, i only understood that my grandpa has already left us for almost a year... i can still re-call how it was like on that saturday morning when i receive the phone call from my mom and sister delivering the news, the news that has really got me shocked...
it was only 8 something in the morning but my phone kept ringing... when i picked up, i was told that grandpa is currently in the ICU and in a serious condition.. I was totally unprepared and never expected to receive such news... my late grandpa was in his 70s when he passed away... he was a rather healthy man with a great eye sight and has never got any serious illnesses other that the TB he had about 10 years back... it was just a sudden heart attack from nowhere that bring tears into my eyes and brought him away from us forever..

it was a painful reality that my family and myself have to face... he's gone forever and what is left for us is just the memory of him living with us... Grandpa.. i miss you very much...
