It’s never easy to lose a loved one, especially when it’s a child losing a parent. Grief comes and goes, but the pain and loneliness left by the loss of a loved one never really go away entirely.
While people often dedicate certain days to pay respects to their loved ones, this particular boy from Mexico couldn’t cope with the loss of his mom, so he would constantly visit her tomb even if it meant not being able to see or hear her. For as long as he could spend time with her, he was okay.
A Boy’s Dedication to His Late Mom
His visit was eventually caught on camera, and what showed in the video clips moved thousands of people to tears. It’s a story of undying love, dedication, and respect.
As he walked through the cemetery, he circled around for a while, trying to find his mom’s gravе. When he found it, he left a bouquet of flowers on it and proceeded to take something out of his bag. It seemed as if the young boy was showing his mother his homework, which was placed in a plastic folder.
It’s unclear how long the boy rested beside his mom’s tomb, but while he was resting, a man with a guitar in his hands decided to wake him up because the cemetery was closing.
Caressing Her Tomb as a Sign of Affection
After reading it to her, he then knelt before the tomb and started rubbing it, talking to her and praying for her. The gesture, which occurred for a couple of minutes, was tearjerking.
As he caressed the tomb, he had his face bent down, wiping his tears occasionally. People passed by and saw him having the heartbreaking moment with his mother, but left him alone so he could continue spending time with his late mom.
Spending Prolonged Time at the Cemetery
When he was finally done, he placed his backpack on the ground, laid his head on top of it, and fell asleep. It didn’t matter to him that his beige pants were dirtied on the floor, as what mattered to him the most was that he was with his mom.
It’s unclear how long the boy rested beside his mom’s tomb, but while he was resting, a man with a guitar in his hands decided to wake him up because the cemetery was closing. Without question, the boy picked up his things, gave his mother one last hug, and walked away as if to say “see you later.”
The Internet Felt His Pain
Clips of his visit instantly went viral on social media, particularly on TikTok where it garnered over 1.9 million likеs and 12,000 comments. The touching video was also posted on YouTube, where people made sure to leave their comments, with one saying:
