A person can only keep themselves busy for so long before they reach a point where they are forced to stop and face the reality that is in front of them. Death is inevitable. We all have to leave our love ones behind soon or later. Death is not something we can choose to avoid. I understand this, but it's so hard for me to accept.
My cousin is dying. There is nothing more I can do. There is no more hospital bills I can pay. My little cousin is going to die from Cancer.
I ask myself everyday, why didn't we see this sooner? Why didn't we force him to get body exams more often? Why didn't we value the time we had with him more? So many questions, and all have one answer. We don't value life until it's gone. When we are young, we feel invincible, but what god can give he can also take back. If we waste life, even just one minute of it, we can never get it back.
Speaking to him is so hard now. I can barely make out a word from crying. Learn from my regret, don't take life for granted. Every child death is a reminder that life is precious and that we should make every moment count before we run out of time.
