Cherish those memories

Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish them.

Most times, we don’t know what we have until we lose it. I once had a woman who was everything I wanted.

She gave life another meaning and made me see it from a better angle. She loved me unconditionally even when I kept messing our relationship.

She thought me how to let go of anger; she helped me with my flaws. When I was down she was there to lift me and became the mother I never had. She treated me like I was her child when I was even her senior by age.

The worst mistake I ever made was to take her love for granted and hoping that she would still be around when I decide to let go of my wrongdoings.

She was with me through thick and thin and her love made me realize that I have never been there for her. I never knew the battles she was fighting or her fears.

I never got to know why she loved me so much and stuck with me even when I never treated her better. I went home after work and hoping she could come over in the evening like she always does, but I never saw her after two days.

I was forced to search for her and I got to know she was admitted into the hospital and she was in the last stage of cancer.

I didn’t know when I started crying when I realized your worth I lost you; it’s been so many years back, but the memories still linger like it’s new.
