Wow to post about a past disappointment, mistake, or missed opportunity. This may seem weird to say but I think one thing I am disappointed about is never telling my best friend in High School how much I really liked him. I won't say I loved him but there was something there that we both never acknowledged.
He married someone else and was very happy until she cheated on him. I felt for him. I remember meeting his wife and him meeting my fiance. He told my fiance that if he ever did anything to hurt me to watch out. I really wish we had kept in touch a lot more.
He has been dead for 23 years. I remember the day my mother called to tell me. She didn't want to until my husband was home. I made her tell me and I didn't cry until my husband walked in the door. To this day I still think about him and will cry or even just tear up. He was the brother I never had as I was the sister he never had. I now think that I loved him but didn't know it until after he was gone.
I regret not keeping in touch with him and not getting to say a final goodbye at his funeral because I was on bed rest due to my pregnancy. His mother and I saw each other at my mom's funeral and she said That now Mikey has his second mom up there with him. That was my way of being able to say goodbye to him.
