I never thought it was a big deal looking down at the screen. I just wanted to let you know “I’m on my way and I love you. See you in a bit!” I never thought “See you in a bit” would never come. I never thought that “I love you” would be my last. I never took more than five seconds to put it away. I never thought that if I waited, I would have seen you that day. I never gave you one more kiss hello. I never took you to that show. I never thanked you for that gift you had for me. I never laughed at all your jokes that night. I never gave you that hug goodbye. Because, I never took more than five seconds, But five seconds took me. I hope you never look down at that screen. I hope you wait. I hope you never think just five seconds will be okay.
A deceased driver telling their loved one that they never were able to see them that day because of a deadly crash, caused by their distracted driving. Telling their loved one never to make the same mistake.
