Dedication Post To Mr Lee,


Hello everyone. Today, I will be writing this post in the train. As I am busy recently, I apologised for not being able to update more frequently nowadays. My poems will be scheduled in once every 3 to 4 days. Hope you can understand and continue reading them!

Today, I will be dedicating this post to a great leader ; an inspiring person, my idol, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
On the 23rd March, he passed away. This heartbreaking news broke hearts of many including mine.

As mentioned in a post i posted last week, he was a great man. At the very point, I felt strongly that no matter what, I should pay my last respect to him or I will really regret it for the rest of my life. Without him, there will not be us today. I’m really grateful and thankful.

It had been a harsh week but I have seen really heart-warming news, kind acts on the streets and so. The kind acts we see on the streets are really heart-warming and probably those that we could find comfort in such a bad time..

I will like to share some photos with you.

Mr Lee, although you are not here any more, you will always live in our hearts and memories. Thank you for all your contributions to Singapore, building Singapore from a small village to where we are right now. Thank you for opening many doors to the bright future for us.
I am really proud to say that I am a Singaporean and you will be deeply missed.

Goodbye and Rest In Peace, Mr Lee.

Thank you Mr Lee,

It’s really sad to be waking up to such sad news. A man that I have truly respected and idolised since I was young. You are truly an inspiration and though you are not here anymore, you will always live in all our hearts and memory.

As quoted from you, ‘At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life.’ Thank you for all that you have done for Singapore, building SG from a small village to where we are right now. Though I do not know you personally, you will always be the one that I looked up to. Without you, there will not be us.

For people who are looking for the legacy that he left behind, just look around you right now.

Rest In Peace, Mr Lee. #ripLKY #ThankyouLKY #RememberingLKY #leekuanyew

#45 Poem to Aunt,


Holding onto your skinny hand,
while letting our hopes stand.
We stayed by your side,
yet our words are tied.
Praying for you each day,
wishing you could stay.
As tears trickled down your cheek,
I wondered what was it you wanted to speak.
When we watched your breath slowed down,
we frowned as our hearts pound.
Waiting for the next breath that never comes,
our hopes shattered into crumbs.
We held on to the last tinge of hope,
to have it all gone down slope.
As we find for the last sign of heartbeat desperately,
only to realise we have lost totally.
To watch your leaving,
I had indescribable feeling.
Yet knowing that you no longer need to fight,
soothed our broken hearts tonight.
Having you in our lives was a gift,
and be sure you will be missed.
-CW

This poem above is dedicated to my aunt who had passed away on 30th August 2014.
She was a fighter for cancer and a really wonderful aunt. 
Respect to her for her optimistic attitude throughout her whole life.
Thank you for everything.

Rest In Peace, Aunt. 

#2 Letters to heaven


I know I have promised for a blog post about my question in the previous blogpost but something happened recently and thus, I will postpone that to future post.

Next, I will be sending another letter to a dear one, who have just gone to heaven.

Dear Uncle Cheng,

Firstly, thank you for the memories in my 18 years of life.
Thank you for always chatting with us. I will miss those times when we talked about education or some experiences in our lives.
I will also miss the times when I shared with you about my volunteering experiences.
Thank you for the jokes and pranks you always play on us since we are young.

I remembered how you used to shout my name from behind and gave a smile.
I remembered how you made a fool out of us when you pulled the loud trigger that scared all of us when we entered the house.
And for the second time, I had myself prepared before you could press the trigger. That moment was pretty much hilarious. :’)
I also remembered when we are playing games, you love to cover our eyes and asked us to guess who you are.

These few days were tough for all of us.
Our feelings cannot even be expressed by words.
These days were unbelievable and everything felt so unreal. Perhaps it was too sudden for all to accept.
I lost a person to chat with, a person to read and give comments about my blog and articles and an awesome person in my life.

Yesterday, the last day of the funeral, it rained heavily, as if the sky was soaking with our tears. That emptiness in our heart was made even more obvious.

Rest in peace, dear uncle.
Thank you for being a great uncle all along.
Thank you for all the great memories you left behind. 

It was blessed to have you as my uncle.

We will miss you.
Definitely.

Loves,

CW
