“The Light That Shines When Things End” by I Wrote This For You

I hope that in the future they invent a small golden light that follows you everywhere and when something is about to end, it shines brightly so you know it’s about to end.

And if you’re never going to see someone again, it’ll shine brightly and both of you can be polite and say, “It was nice to have you in my life while I did, good luck with everything that happens after now.”

And maybe if you’re never going to eat at the same restaurant again, it’ll shine and you can order everything off the menu you’ve never tried. Maybe, if someone’s about to buy your car, the light will shine and you can take it for one last spin. Maybe, if you’re with a group of friends who’ll never be together again, all your lights will shine at the same time and you’ll know, and then you can hold each other and whisper, “This was so good. Oh my God, this was so good.”

  1. This is not a comment for this particular post (although, I like this post very much). This is a comment for “Reasons Not to Kill Yourself” which I must have missed when you initially posted it. I would have remembered a title like that.

    I am printing it out. I need it almost daily, if only for 5 minutes or 5 seconds. I always need the reminder and these are SO GOOD. Thank you. There are people out there who save me and they don’t even know it. You are one them. xoxox
