“Walang Hanggang Pag-ibig”
pencil and acrylic on canvas
“When that final moment does come, let not my loved ones grieve for long. Let them comfort each other. And let them know how much happiness they brought into my life. Let them pray for me, as I will continue to pray for them, hoping that they will always pray for each other.” “Let them know that they made possible whatever good I offered to our world. And let them realize that our separation is just for a short while as we prepare for our reunion in eternity.”
(Excerpts taken from the poem Prayer for a Happy Death by Cory Aquino)
