I lost one of my dear friends few weeks ago to a road accident. The last time I met him was couple months before the accident when I attended his wedding party; and the picture of him dancing during the reception still remains on my mind. I couldn’t process that information back then, I still can’t.
A few days after he passed away, while searching for something on my cell phone, I came across the last text that I exchanged with my friend. It was on the eve of his wedding, he had invited me to a party the night before to meet his family and friends. I was running late and asked him if it’s too late to make it to the party. He replied saying – “It’s never too late”.
My dear friend left me with those beautiful words that I will remember forever. He was a cheerful friend who is always there for you. I didn’t have to tell him that I am upset or need his help. He was one of those who will be by your side no matter what, he was the friend I would hide behind in crowded parties. No matter what is going on in his life, he is always there spreading love and happiness to those around him.
I dearly miss him. I keep looking at his Facebook page hoping that he would reply to all the dear messages that his friends have left on his wall after he passed away. I contemplated writing this post for the past 4-6 weeks and then I remembered, it’s never too late.
