Earlier today, I almost lost a very important person of mine to a car accident. Someone whom I hold dear in my heart. My little tough cookie. Thank God that she came out okay, a little shaken up by what happened with injuries here and there but she’s still with me. And I have never been more grateful in my life.
The purpose of this post is to remind you to hold onto who and what is dear to you and to appreciate every single moment there is because no one knows what’s going to happen the next second. Say what you have to say. Do what you have to do. Love when you can, if you can. Always love. And love hard. You can never go wrong with loving hard when it comes to those whom are dear to you in heart.
Putting down his game controller, he turns to his friend,
“You know, if she and I were still together, she would be mad at me for playing too much games instead of talking to her.”
“And truth be told,” he continues, “I actually love it when she gets mad.”
“What are you, a masochist?”
“No, it’s not like that.” He replies to his friend,
“She used to get mad at me a lot over the smallest things, and it was frustrating. But that’s what I miss the most about her right now because now I know that she was mad for one goddamned reason.”
He pauses his sentence as he runs his fingers over the watch on his wrist that was given to him by her on his birthday,
“And the reason was, she cared. She was mad only because she cared.”
“Though I don’t say much,” I spoke, “or maybe I don’t even say it at all,”
I reached my hand out to caress her cheeks,
“But I hope you know that no matter what happens, I will be here with you.”
I smiled when she smiled as I continued to speak,
“Wherever you go, I will follow.”
You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. The only good thing I have in the midst of chaos around me.
“But I’m not drunk…” She slurred her words against his chest, her eyes barely opened.
“Says every human when they are drunk.” He replied. He stopped dead in his tracks as he saw a flight of stairs in front of him.
“Hang on tight, you definitely wouldn’t want to roll down that.” He told himself as he tried to adjust his arms around her for a better grip before taking the first step.
Looking down at her sleeping face as he slowly went up the stairs, he gave a little smile. How he wished he could freeze the time right at this moment.
“Look at you,” his voice low and soft,
“If only you could see how beautiful you are, how amazing you are. If I were you, I would embrace you like you are the most precious thing in this world like what I’m doing right now.”
“And I can only tell you this when you are fast asleep,” he spoke quietly,
“I truly adore you.”
