Once in a while,
life takes away someone you hold dearer too.
It may be one of your parents, a family member, a relative, or a friend.
Life seems to come to a standstill.
It seems to be slipping amidst your fingers like sand.
You lose control over everything, your happiness, your emotions, and your life.
Their absence creates a vaccum in your life, which you do not want to fill.
You drown yourself in work, to find peace with yourself.
But to no avail.
You don't get peace. Nothing looks good.
When such thing happens.
Just remember, there are still people that departed soul left behind.
There are still people who rely on you.
There are still people who have every reason to break apart, but they are holding on just to see you smile.
They are still people whose pain in more than you, but they look at you and smile, just to see you smile.
They are the ones you need to start living for.
Make them your reason to live.
Because there's always one reason that's left behind when life falls apart.
Please hold to that one reason.
Because the person you lost,
is twinkling in the sky,
watching over you as you cry.
He wants to see you joke again,
He doesn't want to see you lose hope in vain,
He is waiting each day,
to see you let go of the pain,
And learn to smile again.
