The promise he made long time ago, helped him to survive.

A Promise...

It sure looked like a ugly nightmare. Only a few days ago, they were enjoying the sweet joy of being newlyweds. They thought that they would be together until the end of time. And, who could blame them? When you are young, you can't help thinking that life is nothing but a beautiful dream for you to enjoy. Little did they know about the wasting disease that was hiding in the blood of one of them. He thought that the doctors made a wrong diagnosis, because, her wife couldn´t have that thing. It would be unfair! But sadly, some tests revealed that the nightmare was, indeed, very real.
He held her as if she were made of pure gold. “Please, don't leave!”, he yelled desperately. “Don't worry about me, my love” she whispered softly, “If I leave, please, promise me that you'll always remember the happy moments we lived, instead of crying remembering this nightmare”
“I am not sure if I could do it”, he answered,while bitter tears began falling from his eyes. “But if you ask me to do it, then I'd have to do it” As the young man finished saying those words, his beloved wife exhaled her last breath, leaving him alone in a world, that at times, can be so cold.
Years passed by, and, against all odds, and even against himself, the once young groom is still alive.
There are certain days when even breathing hurts, and his mind gets filled with a lot of depressing thoughts. And yes, he wants to cry his heart out. But then, he remembers the promise he made, and his soul gets filled with a little bit of light. There is no use in getting hurt by painful memories of those who are long gone. There is nothing like remembering with a smile on your face.
