I am guilty as well

When the light goes out…

 I’ll see you no more,

 miss you no more,

 love you no more..

When my heart’s throb will be no more,

I’ll be nowhere to be with you,

Stay with you,

Spend time with you,

Have fun,

Share life’s best moments with you,

And to be present even in the low moments,

For long I’ll have gone…

So,  before then…

Before you post those RIP messages on social media

Before you tell long tales of how much you knew me,

How we did so much together…

Can you be real?

Love me,

See me,

Be with me,

Spend time with me,

While I breathe,

When life still flows in my veins,

When my heart beats with love and life?

So that when that time truly comes,

You’ll have something truthful to say?…

“Don’t scatter roses after I’m gone,

Give ’em to me while I’m still alive”

And don’t think there’s something wrong with me,

I’m just saying the truth,  for this is what has become of all of us,

Even to our closest we are miles apart,

Just viewing their statuses on the app,

And never even saying hello,

Perhaps they hurt,  are sick or have a problem you can help solve,

But how much do we do?  Brothers are fast becoming strangers…

In a world where many are hurting,

Be the joy,  be the happiness,  be kind

Love,  be real,  be close,  help out wherever you can.

Let’s have each others backs,

And practice the greatest religion of them all,

That of love.
