Hope everyone is well and ready for another week. This is a different post than normal, no fancy pictures or videos. Just me talking to you a raw post.
Over the weekend, I heard the most tragic news. An old friend of mine died in a freak accident not sure on all the details, but he was so young only 32, recently married and had a bright future ahead of him.
When I heard the shocking news; I broke down my heart was shattered into a thousand pieces. The feeling of loss is never easy and especially something so tragic. It reminded me that we are not in control of our lives and that every moment spent breathing on this earth is a gift from God.
I could sit and ask why this happened over and over again, but the answer I seek will never be found. Accepting this fate will be hard but one that must be done. He was a great friend, very wise, always gave me great advice when I needed it and even though distance and time separated us. I knew if I had to call or chat we would pick up as we saw each other yesterday. I can truly call this guy a true friend.
It still feels so surreal, and I wish that his story did not have to end this way. I know the tears I cry will not bring him back. All I can do now is pray that he is in a better place and that we will one day meet again.
Life is beautiful, and life is cruel, it’s a lesson we learn from situations good and bad that will set us apart from the rest. We hear it everyday life is short and never truly acknowledge it until it is too late. May this be a lesson to all, tell your loved ones you love them every day because you never know when it is the last time.
I know life gets busy and hectic, and things just happen but my lesson I have learned from this is; we cannot take any second we have alive on this earth for granted and as much as we try we are not in control of our lives. I truly have that Summertime Sadness.
I think I’ll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky

I like to write; it’s my way of dealing with my feelings and emotions too. When I found this news out on Saturday I wrote this and would like to dedicate this to him may his soul RIP.
To mourn a life not seen
What is it to mourn a life
Life not seen, a love not felt
But in-between the distance of time and space,
What was will always be
Today my heart is broken into a thousand unseen pieces
For the life I haven’t seen but a love I know was always there.
A young mind and an old soul here today gone tomorrow
My life was turned upside down once but the mind of the old soul turned it back up
A Life of another touched mine so deeply
Helped mold me into the women I am today
Thank you dear friend for the time we did share and even the distance apart
You now rest in peace with angels above
A love so true a friend a so dear
I have never stopped caring for the person you were and the person you became.
May, the lord, take you in his care and one day we will meet again
Oh to mourn a life
A life taken too soon. – Thalea Pretorius
