Dead Man’s Wish

Image result for broken heart images

Feel that pain inside of your chest?

That means you’re alive

Being alive means feeling it all,

pain, pleasure,

love, hate,

joy, anger

I hate the pain inside of my chest right now

But I know a dead man who would give anything to have one of my bad days

Because his days got cut short

If only he could walk outside and feel the wind on his skin again

Or listen to the birds chirp

Or tell one last person how much he loves them

He would tell me not to waste one minute of time wishing for death

Or drowning in sorrow

He would tell me all the things he misses about being alive, including the hard days

And I would tell him,

“I’m learning how to live because of your death. I love you.”
