When my grandma was alive, her and my grandpa were so happy and so in love and they really taught me what it was to love someone and cherish them. I would see them together and I would think to myself, how can people say they want to be single? Who would want to miss out on love like this? I know we as people don’t like the drama and the problems that come attach with one, but wouldn’t it all be worth it for this? If only we can open our eyes and see the beauty that comes with having a relationship, many of us would be in love. Because I’ve noticed that the one’s who say they don’t want to be in a relationship, have never really experience what it is to be in a relationship. And the one’s who say they want to stay single, haven’t really recovered from being heart broken.
But I tell you, seeing those two just reassured me about everything I have ever written about love, about every post I’ve written about finding someone. They showed me that it doesn’t matter if you’re young or old. They showed me that love comes in different types and shapes and sizes. They showed me that I should never judge, and or assume. They taught me that love was sacred, and loving someone dearly, was more important than being loved. They really looked like the songs about love that I’ve been hearing my whole life you know? and I still remember the day at her funeral, as we were getting ready to leave, my grandpa walked up to her and whispered into her ear. And I thought, what could had been his last words to her, what could he had possibly said before we left.
Later that day, when we arrive home he told me he said, if I remember clearly “My dear, I have lived for the moments when your eyes gazed at me unintentionally. You are my everything. I never believed in love at first sight until I saw you, and it all happened so fast, we happened so fast… but we lasted, and we will last for a life time, because this earth is only a layer of the love I have for you. I love you, I always have and I always will. I’ll always kiss you like kissing you is all I’m allowed to do. You were my once in a lifetime and I’ll see you soon. ” He wiped his tears and turned around and walked towards the family. He’s alone now, and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone, but they to me are still proof that love is more greater than what any of us can see. It’s embedded within our hearts, and within our soul. <3
