This photo was taken on February 10th which is my brother’s memorial day. Normally I don’t go into details about my personal life, but his passing has had a tremendous affect on me, as it would for anyone who has lost someone dear to them.
I feel as if I lived my life on the fast lane ever since that day that he passed away. It’s only been two years but it feels as if a decade went by within seconds, words can’t explain it. I think those who have lost a love one understand.
It’s like I’ve been living my life in a blur trying to forget those painful memories. The saddest moments of my life that I wish I could forget. I never thought a memory could be so painful, even more so the good ones.
But in his passing I was truly able to see how delicate and short a life could be… too short to let it pass by. It’s unfortunate that my brother had to pass away for me to realize all this.
