Some Time In My Life

   I could still remember the first day we've met. I was so happy that time. Before I was stuck in a reality that I am a loser, no one really likes me. They say that I am nothing. But because of your comfort and advice, I moved from sunken spirit to the top. You taught me how to fight so I learned. You taught me how to stand on my own. Then we became close friends. You said, you'll never leave me. We're like brothers. Perhaps, like a twin. I am so grateful to have you, as my best friend.

   Time passed by, I never thought that our friendship would end up this way. A drastic truth unfolded that you were diagnosed positive to leukemia. I was shocked. I never failed to visit you to the hospital. I saw you physically drained. You became pale and thin. It hurts me seeing you like that. But despite of this, I still saw the real you, humble, kind and most of all, God-fearing. I still remember your soft voice saying " Don't forget me my friend, have faith with God always. Just stay with Him and I will stay in your heart. Don't cry when I'm gone." Those were the last few words you told me. Then your eyes began to close slowly as if you would only want to sleep. I ran out of the hospital because I knew you left me already. I cried a lot. Now, I'm alone.

     Two years had passed, but I still long for you. My tears began to fall again . I am reminiscing the last few months we've been together, before you left. Those times that we shared while we were taking the long journey of life. It is a very special memory from a friend like you. I am so lucky to have met you, some time in my life.
