“You are the most amazing woman who is always stunned by the beauty of the night with its bright stars playing hide and seek under the opalescent moon.“
“I terribly miss the way you grin when you’re up to something. I miss the way you pretend not to notice me when I do something silly. I miss the way you pamper me. I miss you in each cup of coffee I smelled in the morning. I miss you mostly at night especially when waking up in the morning. I miss those silly things whispered at night and those jokes told in the morning. I can’t wait to kiss you. I’ll see you soon, Darling.“
And here’s the most heartbreaking one that made me weep and had those terrible sobs that wailed through the room. With those deep shuddering sighs, tight chest, burning eyes and blowing nose, I let it slammed hard while squatting on the floor with my back against my bed as I read this:
“By the time you read this letter I shall have been gone. I requested Dad to give this to you when time has come. I have lots of things to thank you for. First is for loving me more than yourself. I know about the difficult crossroads you have encountered because of me. Without your knowledge, I came across to your collection of letters and notes. I never expected that you have treasured even my silly ones and to have them arranged chronologically, too. You really are some woman!
I’m sorry to see you cry. I’d watch you sleep with tears on your cheeks while I pretend to be asleep. I wanted to hug you but you needed the rest. And I’m afraid I was weak. I did not want to see you cry, too.
I knew that I have cancer and that the tumor they took out was a malignant. I begged my family not tell you and told them to be strong for me.
How much do you mean to me? It’s immeasurable. It surpasses the counting of infinite numbers. It goes deeper than the abyss of the ocean. It rises higher than the tallest mountain. And stretches beyond the farthest sea. It goes beyond the limits. Over the horizon to the deepest pits.
I may have taken you for granted at times but I never loved you less than the first time I saw you. You are a God’s gift to me. I never regretted a single moment of my life because of you.
I prayed that I won’t suffer a prolong coma. And that my exit would be peaceful. I knew that your pain would be tripled to see me suffering.
Do not stand on my grave and cry. I’m not there. Don’t think of me as departed. I will always be with you in spirit. Never forget…I LOVE YOU!“
Sigh. Shed tears. Dry a tear. And that’s okay, Darling!
Yes, an old-fashioned LOVE LETTERS are our own ghost of kisses past. It always leaves an amazing trace- perhaps a bittersweet that makes our soul sigh and moves us to tears after reading or a passionate one with those modicum of truth that made us blush, smile and giggle.
