Whenever I feel like talking to you, I talk to the stars. Feels like it’s been ages but also feels like it was just yesterday you were here with us. Thinking about it feels like it’s all a nightmare; like it’s a really bad dream. But there’s no escaping the reality, is there?
I’m not mad that you left. I’m mad because you didn’t give me a chance to say goodbye. So many words left unspoken. The fact that I didn’t get a chance to talk to you for one last time still haunts me.
Why did you have to leave so early? I find myself asking the same question again and again. So many things left undone; so many goals and dreams. Yet, your memories of the past are all that I’m left with.
Time didn’t heal my wound. It dint take away the suffering either. It just taught me how to live with all the pain. It made me accept the ugly truth and face the harsh reality. Your absence taught me a lot more than your presence ever could.You were truly special and a great friend. For that, I’m forever grateful.
To the person reading this, I want to say that you are lucky to be alive; lucky to be surrounded by your loved ones. Once in a while, it’s really important for you to express your feelings to the people around you.
Let them know what they really mean to you. Tell them that you love them. Hug them tight. Annoy them as much as you can. Be kind. Be grateful. Make memories.
Call your friends, text them; or even better, send them a handwritten letter. Tell them that they are special and important. Cause who knows, this might be all the time you have left together.
“Love them like there is no tomorrow”
