Fire and Rain

He told me he’s 'sick’ but I thought it was just the flu or something. He slowly became inactive on FB and for a social media entrepreneur like him, it was unusual. Yet I didn’t ask. In a photo of one of our common friends where he was tagged, I couldn’t recognize him in his sunken cheeks and drastic weight loss. There was definitely a problem but I didn’t ask. I should have had. But he’s always so full of life. Always laughing. And I honestly thought I’d see him again. But he passed away because of colon cancer and now I’m so full of guilt. I’d never see him again. P.S.
James Taylor performing Fire and Rain in 1970.

@sol_cee Of course, that is why if given a chance, I want to get old.

@sol_cee I understand. It can be easy to miss subtle messages that someone is trying to give us.

No point in feeling guilt it doesn't change anything but learn a lesson and always make sure to make sure every relationship is in a position that you wouldn't feel guilty if it suddenly ends, we never know when the last day of life will be.

@nomus24g Not even close. The song matters. Not the year.

One of the many things we do... we always assume that it's okay, even though we know it's not. Until it's too late.

So sad. Like what they say, life we have here is just borrowed time. We never really know when our time comes. Live like it's our last day on earth, that's what I always remind myself to do.

he knew he had cancer, am i right? maybe he isolated himself so you won't feel his absence any longer.
