Have You Really Loved? - A Love Story That Touches Your Soul
A Love Story
An old man weeps openly as a doctor tells him that his wife of 60 years is dying. She doesn’t have much time left. Against the will of his children, he takes her home and lays her on her own bed. Although she can’t hear him, or see him, he holds her hand and keeps talking to her about the happy time they spent, and many blissful trips they took. He reads the love letters he wrote to her, three full cases of them. The ink on the papers has long faded. However, he remembers every word from his heart.
His children prepare nice meals for him. He eats nothing because she can’t consume any food, and he won’t take a nap for the fear that she might perish before he wakes. In the morning, his son walks into the room and finds his father sitting on a chair while holding the hand of his beloved woman, who had died sometime after midnight. His body is cold and stiff.
In his will, he writes: my biggest wish is to hold the hand of my darling wife and accompany her on her final journey. I hope this moment, my wish is fulfilled.
Nowadays, people get married and divorced so easily. Eternal love has become the stuff of legend and myth. Newspaper worthy so do speak. Every so often, people fall in love because they don’t know each other very well, and fall out of it for the reason that they know each other too well. To some, love is like a game, only win or defeat, but no forever. Yet, deep down inside, we all hunger for that special someone, who will light up our life and bring meaning to the world that we are living in.
