I know it hurts

Updated on April 3, 2010

All the things we did.

I met Laura at the very point of my life when i needed someone to talk to, someone to listen to me and someone to love me, she was my best friend and we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.

It was love at first sight, was on a camping trip and i will say that if she didn't showed up,that particular trip would have been one of the worst i ever had but she made it a pleasant one though she resisted when i first approached her but before we got into the train.It was all but love.

Her hand was the softest i have ever touched and her smile was so true and pure.

That moment at the train station was the best moment of my life.The very moment we held each other was our turning point, we held hands and was together throughout the time we waited for the train to arrive.

We walked round the station discreetly,and my heart beating faster because i have never felt like this before and have never held a girl the way i held Laura.Today and this very moment was a moment of discovery to me.

It started right in the station

The night journey was lovely

You made me see rainbows

Without a single rain drop

The moon light up the sky

The day we became one

We never let go from this day

It is now seven years of true love.

We were great lovers and our romance was going the right way,our dream to marry each other was about to come.

The day

I have to meet her family to show my interest in marrying Laura,so the day arrived and i was there seated with my parents and an uncle,we made our motives known and the uncle who was like the head of their family because her Dad was late began to question me like he has not met me before, he asked me couple of funny questions like my profession and how do i intend to take care of his niece.I told him that my father owns a grocery shop which i do manage and automatically will inherit being the only child.

He seems not satisfied with this, to him, he preferred a professional, like a Doctor,Lawyer, Accountant,Engineer to marry Laura.He asked me questions like i was taking a loan from the bank and they wanted a security so to be sure that i would be able to pay back. Anyway, the society we live in has a culture that once a family seek the hand of someone for marriage, they will be given a time to have the answer of the bride's family so they told us that they will get back to us in couple of days.

Five days later, they came up with an excuse that Laura has to finish her studies before getting married.This to me was not a problem,after all we have gone out for seven years so if i have to wait for more seven years then so be it.

We continued seeing each other and our love kept growing stronger every single day.

It is now four months after that particular meeting with her family.

Laura came to me and told me that her family has arranged for someone to come and seek her hands in marriage,these are the same people who said that she was young and needed to finish her studies,now they want her to marry the Prince.She told me that should she go back home that day that i might not see her again.

I got so confused and it is just obvious that all they wanted was to get me out of the picture, they were all concerned for their own interests and never cared how neither me nor Laura felt.Marrying the Prince will create financial chances for them but marrying me will subject Laura to nothing in the society and they will never benefit from me.This was their belief

Hungry Maggots is what i called them, they are all gold diggers, especially her Uncle.

The only way to keep my darling was to elope with her, that is the only solution because i know that even my own Parents will not support me in anyway or help fight to make sure that i don't loose the joy of my life.

I didn't know what happened to me but i just said it,i told her to go home and get her luggage then meet me by the train station. I know that what we would have done was to take off immediately but something made me say that and i didn't know why and how. Laura left to go and get her stuffs as i instructed while i go get mine and some money.

I know it hurts

This is where it all began.
This is where it all began.

I came to the station and met her.To be honest i didn't know what i was doing but i felt that i don't need to cause her any pain or bring our names to the dust,eloping is no sin but that is not the right way to keep our love,i don't want her to suffer,Laura deserves the best.

It hurts for sure but baby listen,

We have crossed many streams in our lives

Our life is whole with each other

But we can't do it this way any more

I want the best for you my darling

This was where it all began

And where it is coming to an end

Your family might be right about me

I am a failure for your love

Please darling don't you cry

We have met here a good number of times

It was the day that the moon light up the sky

You were the one who made me smile

But we have to do things the right way

This will be out last day together

It hurts and hard for me to do

But you deserve the best my darling

Please go home and get married to the prince

Let us just kiss and say good bye

Please go home and don't look back

I am sorry i cannot protect our love

But i want the best for you my darling

I cannot bring your name to the dust

Baby your family cannot pay for my failures

And you have a bright future ahead of you

It hurts but i have no option my darling

Let us just kiss and say good bye

I know it hurts

To say goodbye to someone you love and know that you cannot do without.
To say goodbye to someone you love and know that you cannot do without.

      "I had to meet you her today! There's just so many things to say.- -Let's just kiss and say goodbye!" Rossi- this is one of my all time favorite songs! "I'm gonna miss you -I can't lie". It's gonna hurt me -I can't lie!- -Let's just kiss and say goodbye!" Just tell it like it always is my Brother Rossi! You always tell it like it is so well!

      Sometimes the best thing you can do for the one you truly love is to let go, it hurts but we all have our choices and believe me,nothing happens without a reason but you know what,no matter how hurt it seem,how down and cheap one is taken,WHAT WILL BE WILL BE.Thanks Angel C.(I love you).

      I felt like weeping, they shouldn't have said goodbye to each other, why are people after their interest? forgetting that tomorrow is pregnant not knowing what it will give birth to. its a Sad one indeed, It really Hurt to say Goodbye

      It happens everyday in our lives,arranged marriage where families always want to make out something not minding the hearts to be and what they feel for each other..Thanks for stopping by Dim F.

      Oh No No No. They should have eloped and made their own lives, Some families are just greedy and don't think of the deep feelings of the young couple. Very sad.

      A beautiful story - if it's a real life story, I hope things work out. You never know. Circumstances could work in your favour. Best Wishes.

      Ps. It's also a pity how people look at the outside. A Doctor today could be pauper tomorrow and someone sleeping on the streets yesterday could be a multi-millionaire in just 2/3 years from that time. I've seen it in real-life. :)
