REQUEST: If you happen to read this, please say a prayer for me. I’m feeling dizzy again.I’m only 10 minutes away from the hospital.
This is not a night after wild sex (Hah!)
but that’s one of my wishes though
before I die. (I wish agape love would be sufficient for me.)
THE MORNING AFTER
By Ms Imelda Caravaca. Ferrer
You see, two days ago,
I was scared for my life.
I’ve heard of people
having a headache,
sleeping it off
and never waking up again.
I’ve heard stories
who never got sick
a day in their lives
except for colds and flu
here and there,
dying in their sleep.
I’ve read newspaper accounts
and it makes me wonder.
Have they told the people they love
that indeed, they are loved?
Have they apologized to the ones they’ve hurt?
Have they forgiven their mortal enemies?
Have they lived the life they wanted?
Have they made peace
or God most of all?
If you read
this simple piece,
go tell the people
that they are the air you breathe,
that you get going because of them.
Go read that book you’ve always wanted to read.
I dare you to tell your crush how you really feel for him.
Go ask him for coffee.
Sing in a karaoke bar
Or even in your bathroom.
Dance to the music in your head.
Have a good cry.
Ask for help.
Share your smile to a random stranger.
Give a pat on the back to a co-worker or classmate who did good.
Hug your parents, your siblings.
Tell your friends
that you couldn’t have made it, so far, without them.
Tell them that they are closer than a brother.
Fly to that dream destination.
Write that book, tell that story that only you can tell.
Start living the life you’ve always dreamed about.
Some people may have a thousand days,
Two thousand days,
Three thousand days.
In my case,18799 days, so far.
We cannot see into the future.
Some may have tomorrow.
Some may only have TODAY.
Don’t put off something important.
