a letter from the dead

a letter from the dead

A Poem by strange_gurl

it's a letter that my friend wrote it to me just before she dies (am just translating it to english so it might be not perfect)


my dear Tara


i never meant to cause you pains,i never meant to make you cry every night but my illness wasnot my choice and my death


every morning i wake up in the hospital i would run to the mirror , wear my mascara to hide my tired eyes


put my face cream on to hide my cheek bones


put my lipgloss to hide my dry lips


just so you dont feel my pains


but i now dont have the strength to run,i dont have the strength to raise my hand to hold yours


i try to smile just to comfort you


i try to hide my fear from death


but i always fail  as your warmth touch remainds me that i dont have much of a future


by the time you read this letter i will be dead ,i will be released from the pain so dont cry but visit my grave everywhile and i promise i will be listening to you


and always remember we are one not two

THis is probably the sweetest thing ive ever read. It is so true. we cant run from fear, and when you are truly friends with someone...well, your hearts beat as one, not two.
