I’ve lost my best friend…

Yes, it is indeed difficult to lose someone really special, someone you loved dearly; but life gives us meaning by change, by an old death and new birth, and so the cycle under time goes on and on throughout our lives. And exactly this should never be forgotten, that life is change; if you adapt to change, you may find strength to go on and become better in your life…

“I’ve lost my best friend…”

Ever lost someone, but someone extremely special to you, someone you carry in your very DNA, someone who made you into who you are today, someone who you feel in your very bones, in your very flesh, and someone who somehow in your each laughter and tear lights your way in this life…??

We would build trenches and castles in the sand,
We would play video games and he’d let me win;
Life was easy, without tears, perfect around him,
He was God to me, no Devils, no demons, no sin…
I wish I knew why, but I grew up and demons came.
O how I wish I would understand why I went insane!
O too many memories for I’ve lost my best friend!
I always loved him but I did not show it till the end!
If I could go back in time I’d tell you what I should,
Yes, I would not cause you any pain and be good.

Once he called me in the room and sat me down,
He smiled warmly, but very proudly I looked away;
He tried to talk sense into me, guide me with love,
But I remained distant, like I knew the better way…
Jumping from school to school, I brought him pain.
O how I wish I would understand why I went insane!
O too many memories for I’ve lost my best friend!
He was my dad, my very all, my partner till the end!
He loved his family and brought us to new shores,
In the new territory he taught me how to open doors.

In his last moments at the hospital I didn’t say much,
He went somewhere and never came back to me.
So cherish your loved ones, love all their characters,
For after death they in your memories you will see…
Yes, I learned from my father all a real man should.
O how great he was even though I was not so good!
O too many memories for I’ve lost my best friend!
I always loved him but I did not show it till the end!
Wherever you are I hope you see the man I am now.
As you guide me forth I promise to make you proud.

Losing a loved one is always a tragedy, a moment of sadness no one can avoid; however, this is the beauty of life, all this change and pain is what makes us or destroys us–it is the challenges that which is the very heart of life.  We are meant to live these challenges, not to turn away from them or denied them but to feel them, cherish them, learn from them, and rise from the ashes that live in you.  That’s the secret:  Rising from the ashes, not staying buried in them.
