This past weekend has been a challenge. The more I talk to someone else, the more I think it’s just a waste of time. What’s the point anyway? Flirting is just a drug to me. I get a thrill during the conversation, then comes the playful laughter. But after, I sink into this thin layer of depression, covered up by a mask that I’m supposed to wear in public so no one will ask me, “what’s wrong?” What’s worse is not hearing from you. It’s hard not seeing you or talking to you for a day, let alone three. I can’t tell if it’s better off that way. From my perspective, it seems like you are better off. I, however, am struggling. Even though you told me that I can talk to you about anything, what exactly can I talk about? There isn’t a day when I don’t want to call/text you, just asking to come over or see what you’re doing.

Life can be very unpredictable. It shows how important goodbyes really can be. No one chooses to say “good bye” because no one truly wants to, but then again, most don’t even get a chance to. You see someone almost everyday that you think, “I’m positive I’ll see them again next time.” You just saw that person less than a second/minute/hour/day/week/month ago. Their faces are still fresh in your memory. Then, the breaking news hits & they’re unexpectedly gone forever. The only time you’ll ever see their face again is in photographs & in your memories. You then think to yourself, “I didn’t even get to say good bye.”
Rest in peace, Mr. Valentine. Thank you for everything you have done for us. You have been a great neighbor & a very close family friend. Our family & the community with miss you dearly.
