To be amazing is to leave behind a legacy. You will only know you were in the presence of an amazing person if you feel their influence engulf your waking life with the subtlety of a whispering breeze. You know it was there but you can only feel for it.
She left with a legacy.
“Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves” – Jawaharlal Nehru
Years passed since I last saw her. Years passed since I last spoke to her in person again. It only took 3 months to appreciate and love a person without guile or worry or judgment. All in all, I will always remember the moments we shared and what it felt to be … simply … happy. She was a true believer that life mattered above happiness and to live it each and every day with every breath, every heartbeat, every sigh. I won’t waste my time writing about my disappointments, but I will look back knowing I was in the presence of someone great.
We were friends with a mission. Wholeheartedly, He is a team player with a genuine soul and heart. He is a true friend – forever and always. He took care of her with words full of care and to sooth her fears. Of course, we humans consider ourselves to be strong, but lest we forget we are human and are allowed to be vulnerable. Vulnerability is not weakness; it is acknowledging the fact there are holes in our armor and sometimes love is the patch that protects us.
To lose somebody close and dear to our hearts is an aching pain that will never be healed by time. It is the connection to someone so loved that we extend ourselves kinetically into the space and universes without our knowledge … always searching for them … Yet there are some of us who are able to release that ache and continue to live in the brightness of the legacy.
I have learned a great about myself these past few months and how life is short. Short enough that you should live without negativity, to be open to every opportunity, every unknown adventure, each and every path not taken … to be a genuine human being with love that is boundless and to be a friend without judgment. To never take for granted the potential of friendship in a stranger and that effort is meant to keep connections alive and healthy. Keep in your mind that a kind unselfish soul will always be remembered.
Missed opportunities are drops in a dark pond that illuminate as they fall through and become thoughts of regret or action. Regret because you had the dim foresight or were oblivious to what was in front of you. Action because you would never want another opportunity to pass you by again …
Don’t be the person who regrets to take action … live as you are and you will find what you think you’re looking for … I will never forget you and what you meant to us. We couldn’t say goodbye and never will because we will see you again when it’s our time to fly to the stars.
