Finally found true love, days later I lost him to a disease- addiction
I am now 22 years old.. my best friend of a long time and I discovered that we were actually crazy about each other.. For a few weeks we tried to break it off to save our amazing friendship but we couldn't and finally started officially dating. On the 5th day of us dating, he sent me a sweet text message, exactly 4 minutes later his sister phoned me, explaining to me that he had passed away.
I was spending time with my family out of town and rushed back to Pretoria immediately. When I got there, his body was still in his room and the police would not let me see him. He overdosed on heroin. After being clean for a very long time, he was due for his next treatment in only 2 weeks. His mom was in such a state, his sister explained to her that I was there and she looked up straight away, shocked. She grabbed me and hugged me, we cried together for about 15 minutes.
There is so much that I wish we had done and said. So much we missed out on. When i think back, I can sometimes hear him saying 'I love you', eventhough he wasn't saying anything. We never got to say that to one another. It has been 4 months today and I feel emptier every day that passes. I just cannot understand how after my whole life, I finally find someone that I could spend every second with and know that it is real and meant to be, and then within days it all gets taken away. We fell in love with each other's souls.
