"Is death the last sleep? No-it is the last and final awakening."
-Sir Walter Scott
Today,I lost a very dear friend of mine. His happiness, joy and carefree attitude is one that cannot be emulated.
Him and his brother have been with me through some tough things...one of them involving a life or death situation. They were there for me. I played soccer with this kid and his older brother for years and loved every second of being their teammates. They were both incredibly well mannered gentlemen. And the one who passed away was full of life and laughter.
It was only this week that I was talking to him in class.
We were both talking about how much we hated that class...heh...
Losing him reminds me how fragile life can be..how we don't stop to think many times about how weak our existence is. That we are here one day gone the next...
I thank God in Heaven for blessing me with all that I have..and for waking up everyday.
This being said..I also believe that life should not be taken lightly..and that we should all celebrate the existence we all have. No matter how fragile.
Love thy neighbor and thyself.
Spread good cheer and happiness.
Make it a pleasure to be around you and so when you are gone...
People will notice that bit of happiness missing from their lives ...
I already miss him smiling already..I miss his existence.
My prayers go out to his older brother and family.
I love you man.
I will see you soon.
