Love is truly a powerful thing. Once people experience it, they become subject to this overwhelming emotion making them care for another person unconditionally. While love differs in form, some love goes beyond the boundaries of time.
Many people say that it is very hard to find your one true love. Some people even wait a lifetime just for that special someone, that soulmate to come so they could share the rest of their lives together. But others are lucky to have found their partner for forever.
These people are those who have met their romantic match and have sworn to stay with them through thick and thin, for richer or for poorer. They have made a commitment to one another to be there for each other even at the end of one’s life.
This very image of pure, gentle, and quiet love is seen among our elders who have triumphed over the romantic challenges of time. Take for example the old couple in this trending hospital footage.
In this viral footage, we see two elderly people lying in a hospital bed. One was a man wearing a white long-sleeved shirt and he was lying on a bed that was placed closely next to another bed. On the other bed lied an elderly woman with her hands on top of her chest. She was wearing a printed brown blouse, and seemed to be sleeping.
We learned that these elderly people were actually husband and wife. The man is seen caressing his wife’s head, as if he was trying to make her feel his presence. The wife, on the other hand, just lied there silently without any reaction at all.
Apparently, the woman has already left this world and has transcended beyond life. This footage that we see of the old man was just his way of saying goodbye to her. She continuously pets her head as if to tell her that everything will be fine and that he will always be by her side.
According to sources, the old woman left life at the age of 90 years old and during her last days, her husband would always ask for the bed to be placed next to her so he could closely take care of his wife before she is gone.
We could only wish that we find the same kind of person who would cherish us until our final breath.
