There was once this guy who was very much in love with his girl.
This romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of paper cranes as a
gift to his girl.
Although, at that time he was just a small fry in his company, his
future didn’t seem too bright, they were very happy together. Until one day,
his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come back. She also told
him that she cannot visualize any future for the both of them, so they went their own ways
there and then…
Heartbroken, the guy agreed. But when he regained his confidence, he
worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make something out of
Finally with all the hard work and the help of friends, this guy had
set up his own company…
You never fail until you stop trying. One rainy day, while this guy was
driving, he saw an elderly
couple sharing an umbrella in the rain walking to some destination. Even
with the umbrella, they
were still drenched. It didn’t take him long to realize they were his
girl’s parents. With a heart
in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the couple, wanting them
to spot him in his luxury
sedan. He wanted them to know that he wasn’t the same anymore; he had
his own company, car, condo, etc.
He made it! What he saw next confused him, the couple was walking
towards a cemetery, and so he got out
of his car and followed…and he saw his girl, a photograph of her
smiling sweetly as ever at him from
her tombstone and he saw his paper cranes right beside her…
Her parents saw him. He asked them why this had happened. They
explained, she did not leave for France at all.
She was ill with cancer. She had believed that he will make it someday,
but she did not want to be
his obstacle… therefore she had chosen to leave him. Just because
someone doesn’t love you the way you
want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have. She
had wanted her parents to put
his paper cranes beside her, because, if the day comes when fate brings
him to her again…he can take some
of those back with him… Once you have loved, you will always love. For
what’s in your mind may escape but what’s in your heart will remain forever.
The guy just wept……The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting
right beside her knowing you can’t have her,
see her or be with her ever again……. ..Hope you understand. Find
time to realize that there is one person
who means so much to you; for you might wake up one morning losing that
person who you thought meant nothing to you.
