It is a universal truth that the most beautiful stories ever written always have an inkling of sadness embedded in it. Romance stories, love stories are the most beautiful yet somehow very sad. There is something endearing about people pining about their soulmates. Every time we see a romantic comedy or see an elderly couple holding hands or showing some love it makes our heart go aww, because nothing beats the feeling of growing old with the person you love. A chemist put out an emotional Twitter thread which is making people teary-eyed on the internet and has gone viral for all the mushy reasons. He shared what he called the “saddest day of his life”. He wrote on Twitter, “I know most of yall wont care but, I just HAVE to share it. Here’s my thread.” However, what he did not believe was that the thread would go viral and it would move people to tears.
The Twitter thread that James Morales shared on his account was that of an elderly couple who used to come to his pharmacy shop to buy medicines. The chemist recounted the usual exchange that he used to have with the couple and how the lady would always smile and made small talk while the elderly gentleman would only look at her and observe what she is doing. However, James Morales was in for a surprise when one day he saw only the man visits his pharmacy. Upon enquiring about his wife he told James Morales that she died last night and he has actually come to return the medicines that she did not use. Check out the Twitter thread below.

The Old Couple
The lovable woman
The couple were well known as they were regulars
The woman was chirpy
James Morales did not know what was coming
The Bad news
The reason for coming alone
Everyone was stunned
Life goes on
The tears have a way of appearing at the most inopportune moment
A promise kept
People who love us never leave us
The strength of the man was exceptional
The importance of expressing your love
Seize the day
Regrets is what we are left with when we don’t express our feelings
Misgivings for life
The solace that was needed
My heart will go on?
Telling someone you love them is important
Everyone was given a wake up call
He did not have anybody
Tell the important people in your life that you love them
