Made for the ''Goody e-bag 02"
It was always hard for him to be together with her and act as if he was just a friend. He loved her, and it hurt him that she only saw him as a friend. As a brother she never had, but always longed for.
He stood with her through good and hard times nonetheless and always with a smile for her. He had an opened ear for any problem she needed to talk about. And his shoulder was always there when she needed a good cry.
And when she finally told him that she had found the man of her life, the man of her dreams, he bore her happiness with played cheerfulness. He congratulated her and wished her all luck and love in her life and kissed her goodbye.
She didn’t understand what exactly he meant by this goodbye, until a week after it the newspapers announced his sudden death. His name, a picture, a successful suicide attempt. She grieved for him and her life would never be the same, even with the support of her love.
She would never know that he had died of a broken heart.
