Sometimes letting go of something you love or care about is hard.
When it comes to people its even harder.
Letting go of someone you love is one thing but letting go of someone you have lost feels like your heart is melting away.
On new years day [morning] I was camping on a beach. I put my feet in the cold water and dug my toes in the mud. I recall inhaling and exhaling heavily several times. I grabbed a shell and managed to write something special on it. It took me 5 minutes to throw it back in the sea. I had finally accepted the fact that one of my close friends of whom I had known whilst growing up is gone.
He passed away. It took me nearly 2 months to accept the fact that he was gone. On a part of the little note on the shell I managed to write ‘R.I.P.’ Now I recall saying that when I heard he passed away, but I never managed to say or write it again because I could not accept the fact that he was gone. But now I have. It was probably one of the hardest things I reckon I have ever had to do, but I tried looking at it from a positive perspective. Not only can I move on but he can too. I have let him go. To a better place.
Now I say…’hes got the best view now’ with a struggling smile on my face.
It is his birthday today.
Happy Birthday Ahmad Basim 🙂
Miss and love you always ❤
