It was emotional to witness the proposal of marriage of a young Italian man to his girlfriend on her deathbed.
Edoardo Parisi entered the hospital where Chiara Giuntoli was hospitalized.
Two days later she passed away and he wrote a message that travels the world.
He asked her to marry. Two days later, she died. The promise of love from a young Italian man on his girlfriend’s deathbed touched Italy.
Edoardo Parisi, 32, entered the hospital where his girlfriend, Chiara Giuntoli , was hospitalized and asked her to marry him: “It was our happy moment , ” he explained.
The proposal was recorded in a video uploaded to social networks. In the filming, Edoardo is seen entering the hospital and reaching Chiara’s bed: ” I wanted to tell you for a while, then I postponed it and postponed it …”, he says. Meanwhile, he takes out a small blue box from his pocket and a ring: “Do you want to marry me?” He asks. Chiara looks at him surprised, excited, and answers yes.
Chiara died two days later, this Friday, at the age of 35, due to breast cancer that she had suffered for two years.
“This was your happy moment, in fact it was ours. How can you be happy in this situation? You were. The video proves it. You said, ‘Sorry, I don’t have the strength to be happier than that.’ But in this ocean of sadness, this video is proof of what I have always thought. True love always wins ” , wrote Edoardo in a moving message published on Facebook along with the filming.
Chiara, originally from Fucecchio, in the province of Florence, had discovered that she was ill two years ago. But she never lowered her arms and continued her fight against the disease with Edoardo, the man with whom she shared the last five years of life.
“This morning I woke up. I slept after I don’t know how many days. I ate breakfast alone … I secretly cried in the shower, like I did at home, because otherwise you would have been angry. Outside the sun shines and a light wind caresses my skin. I opened social networks after a long time, something that two guys like us did at all times, ” wrote Edoardo. “ I have read many messages, more or less cute, from many people. This story seemed really sad, ” continued Edoardo. “Then I stopped and thought that during your illness you have never been sad. Not because you didn’t understand the situation, but because you knew that your sadness would inevitably affect me. And you have always smiled, fought and shined ”.
“This was your happy moment, in fact, ours. How can you be happy in this situation? You were happy. The video proves it ”, added Edoardo. ” You said: excuse me, I don’t have the strength to be happier than this,” Edoardo continued , describing the moment when he asked for his girlfriend’s hand at the Cisanello hospital in Pisa.
“Pero lo vi en tus ojos, estaban cargados con una luz divina. ¿De qué nos hubiera servido escribir aquí si no hubiera aumentado la desesperación? Siempre lo hice y escribí todo cuando estabas a mi lado. Hoy vi demasiada tristeza a mi alrededor. Escrita, hablada, pensada. Hoy brilla el sol. Pensé que este debía ser nuestro momento, nuestro ‘secreto’. Pero en este océano de tristeza, este video es una prueba de lo que siempre he pensado. El verdadero amor siempre gana. Se gana, sobre todo. Es una fuerza verdaderamente extraordinaria, más que una medicina, más que una cura. Nadie allí podría hacerte sonreír. Solo esto, solo amor. Sí, Amor escrito en mayúsculas. Entonces creo que es correcto compartirlo con el mundo”, explicó Edoardo su decisión de publicar un momento tan íntimo. “El mundo debe saber que no importa cuán desesperada sea la muerte, por mucho que trates de destruirte con una cobardía sin precedentes … no lo ha logrado con nosotros. Nosotros, JUNTOS, hemos hecho esto. Le sonreímos en la cara”.
“Ahora que todos lo ven, realmente entienden lo que fuimos y lo que somos”, dijo Edoardo. “Ayer, hoy, mañana … habrá sol. Solo será más difícil verlo. Siempre desayunaré con capuchino y croissant de crema. Mañana los saludaremos a todos juntos. Porque no estoy solo. Tengo una promesa que cumplir, te tengo a ti, tengo un ejército detrás de mí. Acabamos de posponer algo. No estoy muy triste, no estarías de acuerdo.”
Y concluyó: “Ahora sé que si el amor es amor verdadero, nada puede separar a dos personas hechas para estar juntas. Te amo”.
La historia de Edoardo y Chiara se dio a conocer el año pasado, cuando el hombre había organizado un partido de fútbol para recaudar fondos para la investigación sobre el cáncer de mama.
