The cost of love

THE COST OF LOVE I have two facts for you. The first is to love and the second fact is to be loved in return! Who does not need love? Love is the most valuable thing everyone needs. And you must learn to hold on to it loosely. So that when it's to exit, it's not so painful.

On 20th November 1958, An angel was brought to this Earth. His name is Raymond Fredrick Ogwang. I only know him as "Paa" His smile is as wide as the universe. His eyes they glimmer like the stars. He taught the world true kindness. And you were always there for me. He taught the world happiness.  And that laughter was the key. He made all my storms feel so small. He gave me strength when all my strength is gone. He is my world and my father!

On 20th March 2018. I was left all alone, Just like an erect statue in the dark valley, heart broken! Because he left Earth to go back home amongst the stars, right next to the Almighty God. Out of tears that manufactured wings! Out of tears and broken dreams, Yet I'm still haunted by his nightmare cause. And sometimes I have this funny realities that you are still here, still alive! And other things we had planned, I wish we could have done, I will play it again and again and again. And I am tired of crying and praying to God. Because of the fact that my father is never going to come back. And that's the cost of love! Caring for someone so much that you can't imagine living life without them.

Staring at a grave like, how about I trade my six feet for yours, but that's not real! And I know I said earlier to hold on to love loosely. So when it's to exit, it's not so painful. But this pain and this memories are all that I am left with you! I will never regret this coz from the time I hold on to you.

I am sorry to hear on the leaving of your father. I can feel your love to him and your pain. He is still there and be your guardian angel in the heaven to look after you. You will meet him again in the future.
Stay Strong! Pray to God! May Almighty God bless you!

I'm sorry for your loss Mercy:/ You are so blessed to have had that special bond with your dad. Indeed grief is loving someone who is absent. But we have to keep loving to preserve the connection. Until healing comes, may these memories bring him closer, and God's mercy comfort you.
Hugs and love and sparkles to cheer you up.
