Lost my brother, the coolest person on earth!
by Diego Escobar
I lost my brother two weeks ago, he was only 26 and died from a heart attack “Sudden death” the doctor said, I’m 28…I just can’t find an explanation for this situation, the sadness is absolute and infinite, honestly I don’t know how a person can overcome this suffering. Everything hurts at these moments, going to sleep hurts, waking up hurts, trying to get back to work hurts, watching TV hurts…just being alive hurts. At this moment I just want to shot myself, but just the promise I made to my brother stop me from doing it, my brother has a little son he is 8 years old, once by brother told me in kid of joking “hey man if I died someday you have to take care of Juan” and I reply “sure bro count with that”…I never imagine I will have to honor that promise someday, but I will, I have to.
My brother (Ruben) was the coolest person on earth he was multifaceted; first of all he was the most successful ladies’ man I have ever met, no girl in the neighborhood could scape to his charm LOL…awesome friend, he was always there for everyone; musician, he loved to play guitar seventh months ago I gave him a Diamond Sketcher pro guitar, he told me “bro this is the happiest day of my life”…I just can’t conceived my future without him, we always talk about music, movies, girls, even philosophy…I feel so devastated. My brother always believed in “energy concept” as they called it, he used to say “we are all energy, I’m energy…if someday I leave this world my energy will stay” I don’t know why he always said that, it’s like he knew…well brother let me tell you that you were right, your energy is still in this house, in my hearth, in the air I breath, in the wind, in the sun that warm my face…you are everywhere.
I would like to see you one more time bro, but for that I will have to die too, but guess what I made you a promise, and I will honor it, for you and for all the happiness you bring to my life…I will see you in the eternity, but not yet, not yet…I have a promise to keep.
Your brother, Diego.
