We all live with this question in our heads. Why? Why did God take away and deprive me of the people I love the most?
Why did cancer once again win the war and take the life of a precious person, so dear to my heart? At first all we think is, this was not meant to end like this, this is neither a fair ending, nor a fair fight. The thoughts and whys flooding our minds, not ready to say goodbye, hitting your head against the wall thinking how you could have spend more time with them. But at the end of the day, they knew. They knew you loved them, they knew you did your best and did not complain. They were just happy to see you and when they did, a smile that reached the heavens, a heart pumped with happiness, and eyes glowing like the sun, as they discovered that you are doing well in life. Our life, our happiness kept them alive and with zeal they anticipated the next time they lay eyes on us, just so they can live to see the light of day.
Saying goodbye is not easy, and grief is part of death. But when was death not a part of our lives? No one can escape this vicious cycle. We are born and brought in this earth to do great things, live to be remembered and perish. How we choose to deal with a grieving situation however, is what makes it somewhat easier.
Your loved ones are no longer in pain, they no longer have to try to keep their breath alive. Their souls are now pain free and rested and want you to remember them for all the happy moments you spent together. Cherish those memories with your loved ones as these are what make us human, and trigger a plethora of emotions. Keep their memory alive and always remember, there is never a wrong time to say ‘I Love You’ while they are living.
Just like this poem says:
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile,
If only i could have you back for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do
You always meant so very much and always will do too.
The fact that you’re no longer here, will always cause me pain
But you’re forever in my heart until we meet again.
