Message to my brother

For you my brother,

Life is leaving me. I know my cancer has taken hold and the outcome is irreparable. I don’t know how long I have left to live, a few months maybe.

It’s been a while since we last met or talked.

Since that argument … which I find so ridiculous now.

This writing that you are reading today, I wrote it a few weeks ago, I wanted to still have enough strength and lucidity to do it.

I chose that it be delivered to you on this date, our parents’ wedding anniversary, because it represents the symbol of our unwavering bond and it is within a reasonable limit in relation to my state of health.

I have so much to tell you and to share with you, my blood brother, my life …

Unfortunately, events have separated our lives. Out of pride, stupidity, I did not try to join you to explain myself, to apologize. If you only knew how much I regret it when I think of all those moments, all those events, all those family celebrations that we haven’t shared.

Today I want to tell you that if I hurt you, or hurt you, I apologize.

My happiness would be to see you one last time, tell you how much I missed you, and simply tell you that I love you.

Do not delay too long in calling me, coming to see me, I will try to hold on and delay my departure so that I may have the joy of talking to you.

Your brother
