We learn it the hard way
That's how I learned, with tears in my eyes, that two of the most important people in my life have left us, only a few days before a life changing moment, something that could change my future.
Normally, you have to say goodbye to those who have left us. But I, a mere teen who cared more about exams, let my mother go face the hurtful truth alone and see her parents one final time.
Regret eats me at night
And even after all this time, these 5 years that passed since the tragedy, I have not even once visited them to say goodbye. Crying every night, I feel ashamed of my foolishness and weakness.
So cherish them, tell them you love them before it's too late. You don't have your grandparents for a long time, try to make their last moments feel like a beautiful dream.
