She Loves Him

There was once a man who was very much in love with a woman. This romantic man folded a thousand pieces of paper cranes as a gift to his girl.

Although, at that time he was just a small fry in his company and his future doesn't seem too bright, they were very happy together.

One day, the girl told him that she was going to Paris and will never come back. She also told him that she cannot visualize any future for the two of them, so they went their own ways there and then.
Sacrificial Love

When the man regained his confidence, he worked very hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make something out of himself. Finally with all the hard work and the help of friends, the man had set up his own company. You never fail until you stop trying.

One rainy day, while this man 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 girlfriend'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 any more; he had his own company, car, condo, etc. He had 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 girlfriend, a photograph of her smiling sweetly 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 to him that she did not leave for France at all. She was ill with cancer. She loved him and she 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 she loved him and could not leave him for a moment.

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 man continued to weep. 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.

Please find time to realize that there are always someones who means so much to you... for you might wake up one morning losing them who you thought meant nothing to you today.
