Music icon Sharon Cuneta shared her message for her father, the late politician Pablo Cuneta, who would've turned a year older on Tuesday, February 2.
In an Instagram post, Sharon shared photos of herself with her father, who passed away nearly 21 years ago due to a heart attack.
"Happy Birthday in heaven, my dearest Daddy. I couldn’t sleep last night. And before the sun came up, I whispered, 'Happy birthday, my Daddy. I miss you so much. I love you.' I know you heard me. I really am still waiting for your hug. Am not afraid," she wrote in the caption.
"I dreamt of Mommy a few nights ago," she continued. "When I woke up, I was smiling and immediately told Kiko (her husband, Sen. Francis Pangilinan) that you, Mommy, were with me again and we were in one of our favorite places to be, ever —a big airplane!"
Addressing her late mother, former beauty queen-actress Elaine Gamboa-Cuneta, Sharon said: "I dream of you so often, Mommy ko. I can still hear your and Daddy’s voices! Please tell Dad to visit me in my dreams more often naman also. I love and miss you both so much. I would gladly exchange a few years of the time God has allotted for my life for the equal length of time to have you back and be with you both again. I will always love you and will NEVER forget you."
Sharon went on to gush about how her youngest child, Miguel, is so much like her father.
"Daddy, Miguel is so much like you. I tell him all the time that you would’ve loved him so much and been so fond of him had you still been with us and that he is just as crazy about cars as you were! You would’ve spent hours talking about nothing but cars," she wrote.
Sharon ended her post by expressing regret that her children couldn't have their time with their grandparents, saying, "They really missed out on all your love."
"But they WILL know about you. Kiko and I will always make sure of that. I love you with all my heart," she added.
