Deep Love

He was told by a friend that his ex-wife is dying of cancer
She has less then a month to live
His hatred & animosity towards her was put to the side
They were together for years
Early on they were happy
Everything was golden
Trust and addiction was a big problem for him
They eventually divorced
They couldn't stand to look at one another
They sold the home
He moved to the next county over
She stayed local
For years they had no contact with one another
One of their friends kept in contact with the two of them
They swore to him that they didn't want their personal lives revealed to the other person
The friend was loyal and respected their wishes
3 days ago the friend revealed to him that his ex is dying
He was grateful that he told him what was happening
He made a surprise visit to her one day while she was coming home from the doctor
At first she was hesitant and gave him a dirty look
When he saw how much weight she lost, he became upset
Her face, sunken in from all of the medication, disease and by not eating
He confronted her and said, "I'm sorry for what your going through"
She told him that she's dying and that she wants to be friends for the remainder of her time here
He agreed
They looked at one another, hugged for about two minutes and cried in each other's arms
She said thank you for visiting me. You made my day
He did the same
He said if you need anything, please call
"Thank you", she said
She never did
She died 48 hours later
