Boy Visits Mom’s Grave, Shows His Homework and Falls Asleep Using Backpack as Pillow
A young boy decided to visit his mom’s grave to show her his homework and ends up falling asleep with his backpack as his pillow. The boy had to be wakened by a street musician passing through when the cemetery was about to close, showing just how much time he spent by his mother’s tomb.

As he walked through the cemetery, he circled around for a while, trying to find his mom’s grave. When he found it, he left a bouquet of flowers on it and proceeded to take something out of his bag. Later, 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 decided to wake him up because the cemetery was closing.
After reading his homework to her, he knelt before the tomb and started rubbing it, talking to his mother and praying for her. The gesture, which occurred for a couple of minutes, was tearjerking.
As he caressed the tomb, his head was bent down, and he would wipe his tears occasionally. Meanwhile, People were passing by and saw him having a touching moment with his mother, but they left him alone so he could continue spending time with his late mom.
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; 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 decided to wake him 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.”.
