“Cherish every moment and memory as if when night strikes that will be the end, because beautiful things never last. Not roses nor snow, not friendships nor love, and not fireworks either…
But the best memories in life are those unforgettable moments.”
Even if it’s just temporary, hold me.
Even if it’s just for tonight, love me.
Even if it’s just today, tell me if you think I’m lovely.
Even if it’s just for an hour, kiss me.
Even if it doesn’t last, try this with me.
Even if nothing is forever, will you be my nothing?
I held her hand as her color changed.
The change in her face told me it was time to say goodbye.
A last breath as I watched her die, her body finally releasing it’s self from all of the pain.
I stroked her hair and caressed her pretty face, I couldn’t believe I was losing the driving force in my life.
I quietly whispered…
“What am I going to do with out you by my side?”
I knew her answer, but I just needed to hear it one more time.
I couldn’t face that I would never hear her voice again.
I looked at her with hope, hope that she’d open those beautiful eyes again.
I needed her to see the pain I held inside.
Maybe then, she wouldn’t leave.
Maybe she could then ask God to allow her to stay with me.
I watched those around me shed their tears, saw the look in the face of my siblings as they drowned in their sorrow and fear.
I wondered if they knew I was dying in side?
I felt like a failure, for this was the first battle her and I had actually lost.
I asked her in thoughts…
“Didn’t you say it would all be okay?”
This is not okay…
There is an agony growing in side of me, at the thought that I will no longer have my best friend here to take on life with me.
One last time I kissed her face, and gave her hand a tight squeeze.
I wanted to carry her away and keep her, yet I knew it was time to set her free.
“My daily goal is to be truly happy, grateful and to enjoy living the life I have been given to the best of my ability; until it’s time to dress my family, loved ones, and friends in black and tears.”
