Things I will miss when I die.
I want to say goodbye before I die for I may no longer see the morning sun. I may no longer see the warm rays of the daylight as it touches my face in the crack of dawn. I may no longer hear the song of the birds as they play in the branches of an acacia tree. I may no longer see this tree as it sways when the wind blows on its chest. I will miss the autumn leaves that fall while I walk in the mossed pavement of my patch. I will miss the smell of the air after a misty rain. I will miss every raindrop that touches my lips. And I will miss every breath of this life.
I will no longer see the moon that shines at night as well as the stars that stare in my eyes. The sweet morning dew in the palm of the leaves and the warm fog that embraces me.
Before I die, I want to touch the clouds and follow the end of the rainbow. I want to swim the greatest lakes and the seven seas. I want to listen to the song of a waterfall. I want to hear the tranquility of a tamed river. I want to climb the highest mountain so I can shout and say goodbye to the world I will miss, the world that took care of me, the world that sheltered me and the world that loved me.
As I walk in this path called death, I want to say thank you to the people I loved. I may have hurt you in some point in my past and may have taken regret of your affection. I may have afflicted wounds in your heart and injured some piece of our emotions, but honestly, I am sorry.
As my heart beats on its remaining days, I want to say goodbye to you my dearest son. I may no longer see you grow but I know you’ll grow wise and noble. I am sad for I will never feel your kiss again, your warm hug and your young affection. I will miss your sweet breath every time you yawned at my nose and your sweet cry in the middle of the night. I will never see the smile as I look in your eyes and the words “I love you” from your gentle mouth. Tomorrow when I die, I hope you will never cry for I love you my son, you are the meaning of my life.
