At our final hour, we remember what was really important for us, and for me, there will always be that one person who placed herself inside my heart and never got out.

Here I die in the end, without you by my side. You’re in the sky, in the clouds, in the sun…you’re wherever my eyes look upon. And against all odds, I’m not with you in this final day of mine. So many times I dreamed being with you this last moments of my existence, remembering our life together. However, this has proved to be an impossible task for any of us. I don't know if you still remember me, but I’m that guy who stole fire for your heart. I’m the one that appeared in the darkness, to see that blindly light of yours, without knowing that you were in the same situation as mine. I would have had much more confidence if I did.

But time for regrets has passed, as mine to live. Now what’s only left to do is remember what I did, what I had, and what I didn’t do or had. All those moments I should have lived, but I preferred to stay away. All those places I wanted to be, but I placed them away, for another time. All those smiles of yours upon my eyes, and my heart started beating like a beast, going crazy. But yeah, in the end, the only thing that warms me are the smiles I have seen during my life. Because if you smile, I smile. And here I am, opening my mouth in joy, with your eyes in my mind, as I see you laughing for one of my jokes. We were on a terrace over the beach, the sun was high and the soft wind was touching gently your hair while you were looking at me timidly. I didn’t know what to say, but I didn’t want to destroy that moment. It was beautiful, as your hair brightened with the light of the sky. And your eyes were mistaken with the blue of the sea. You were the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. And at this point of my life, I can say you still are. I gave you my heart, not pure, not beautiful, but broken, ashamed and shy. But in the end yours was worse. Because what I found happened to you was heart breaking, and I couldn’t hold me to hug you. But you were strong, you fought your way out, and you did well. You left your life behind, to start a new one. To be in another place where the memories of it weren’t bad, only good and the hope to make them even better. And I wish you had luck and a happy ending, just like me. Because in the end, as I did not make my objective in life, I still enjoyed it. Smile, my love, as I’m smiling too, and there is no joke in it. I loved you, I love you, and I’ll always do. In this life and the other.
