Muškarac zagrlio tužnu ženu na ulici

Nedavno je na društvenim mrežama Aldon O’neill podijelio dirljivu snimku. Snimka je snimljena na sigurnosnoj kućnoj kameri.

Napisao je: „Od 2011. sam viđao jedan stariji par kako se šeta susjedstvom svako jutro i večer. Uvijek su imali iste jakne, velike nove tenisice i štapove u rukama. Svaki dan bi nam mahnuli i poslali poljupce psima. Uvijek su govorili da je divan dan iako bi ponekad hodali po kiši bez kišobrana. Nikada nismo razmijenili imena, ali sam znao gdje žive i oni su znali gdje ja i dečki živimo“. 

Tada je Aldon rekao da je 2015. godina. Rekao je da se vraćao u svom džipu s plaže sa svojim dobermanom Aresom. Upalio je obradu pjesme ‘The Way You Look Tonight“ u izvedbi Maroona 5. Glazba je treštala dok je on skretao u ulicu. Tada je ugledao par kako šeta u svojim istim jaknama i sa štapovima. Srdačno su mu se nasmijali. 

Aldon je odmah krenuo stišavati glazbu, no stariji mu je muškarac rekao da ju pojača. Kada je izašao iz džipa stariji je muškarac izjavio: „Zaista je divno čuti da netko od mlađih sluša takve pjesme“. Tada je uzeo suprugu za ruku i zavrtio ju u njezinim velikim bijelim tenisicama.

Od tada bi oni prolazili pokraj njegove kuće i zaplesali na glazbu koju bi Aldon puštao. Nedavno je Aldon zalijevao svoju svježu travu u dvorištu kada je čuo poznati zvuk jakne. Bila je to samo žena. On joj je mahnuo na što je ona odmahnula. U šali ju je pitao: „Gdje je bolja polovica?“. Ona mu je prišla odmahujući glavom i gledajući ga kroz velike naočale. 

„Nemam ga više“, rekla je drhtavim glasom. 

Bilo mu je jako teško to čuti. Izbrbljao je: „Gospođo?“. 

Ona se okrenula sa suzama koje su tekle ispod tih velikih naočala. 

„Nismo više ništa rekli, samo smo se zagrlili“, napisao je Aldon, „Jako smo se zagrlili. Kao da mi je bila mama ili baka“.

Na trenutak mu je plakala na prsima i rekla: „Samo pokušavam raditi stvari koje smo zajedno radili kako bih imala osjećaj kao da je još tu… trebala sam taj zagrljaj više nego možeš zamisliti. Hvala ti za svu glazbu“. 

Ovo je prava lekcija za nas – volimo se i grlimo neprestano jer nikada ne znamo kada je naš red da odemo Nebeskom Ocu. 

Since 2011 I’ve seen an older couple walking the neighborhood every morning and evening. Matching windbreaker outfits, large white new balance sneakers and a stick in hand. Every day, they’d wave and blow kisses at the dogs. Always saying what a beautiful day it was even if they were walking in the rain without an umbrella. We never exchanged names but I knew where they lived and they knew where the boys and I lived. The year is 2015. The top and doors are off my Jeep and I’m returning from beach with Ares my red Doberman. I’m flipping through songs to use for an edit and started the Maroon 5 cover of “The Way You Look Tonight”. Volume maxed out I entered the neighborhood and made my way to my front drive. As I turned onto my street I saw the couple walking as usual with matching windbreaker outfits and big stick for protection (🤷🏻‍♂️). As I passed them en route to my driveway, they turned and looked at me with huger smiles on their faces. The man motioned for me to turn up the music just as I was reaching for the knob to turn it down. The huge mud tires whirred slowly to a stop On the concrete. After getting out of the jeep while they walked by the front yard, the man exclaimed “Sure is wonderful to hear stuff like that being played by a young’n!” As he he swung his wife’s hand up and over her head twirling her in her oversized all white NewBalance walking shoes with teal stripes. As the years flew by, they’d pass while I was working out, landscaping or wrenching on the truck. Anything from Alan Jackson and Metallica to Thomas Rhett and Lil Wayne would be pouring from my open garage door or split level front yard. They always smiled, they always waved and they always danced. Present day… I’m watering my freshly laid sod. Griswold my standard poodle is close by vigilantly protecting me from dragon flies and the occasional squirrel. A windbreaker suit swooshes slowly down the street below. Alone, the woman approaches. I wave, she waves. I exclaim in a joking manner, “where’s the better half?”.Her stride slowed and she began to shake her head. She looked up at me through her large blinder style sunglasses and with a trembling voice said “I don’t have him anymore.”My heart sank. I rushed down to the street already feeling tight in my own chest. “ma’am?” I said, as I approached her. She turned and with tears streaming from behind here large sunglasses not another word was spoken, we hugged. Big hugged. Like she was my mom or my grandmother. She sobbed into my chest for a moment and said “I’m just trying do the things that we used to so I still feel like he’s around…. I needed that hug more than you know, thank you for all the music.” Hug ‘em big, folks.
