Our hearts stopped when you breathed your last;
Shock made a mockery of our belief.
We look to God, our help in ages past,
For answers: a balm for our relief.
No time to say goodbye –
Death wrenched you from our grip.
Myriads of memories intertwine with tears we cry
Every time your name graces our lips.
Memories of all that you did for us:
You brandished a penchant for going the extra mile.
After your barefaced truth and the occasional cuss,
You spun your world to make us smile.
Perfect passion pulsated from your two heartbeats:
For your children you would give anything.
Yet you loved family beyond your home and left a lasting feat:
You helped your mum build a family tree to connect the lost to the living.
We will miss your piercing “father’s eyes”
And your infectious laugh that shook the room…
Forty-two years, nine months and seventeen days – too fast time flies –
A world without you painfully came to loom.
We are slowly dying to see you
But living to honour the legacy you left behind.
Rest in the eternal arms of our Lord; your reward is due.
Ashana, our sunbeam of selfless love, you are forever in our minds. R.I.E.P (1976-2018)
i just hope...
if we meet on the street
that i’m who you think i am,
a girl’s girl.
a bit rough around the edges.
i can also be unkind.
strong and broken.
i swear a lot.
get in my own way.
laugh at inappropriate things.
sing too loud.
and i write love letters
and thank you cards
and just because cards...
all in my head
because postage has gone up.
and i love my family so much that there is no where else for it to go inside of me
and maybe i hold on too tight.
but i’ll never let go
📷 Throwback to the weekend and my day-date with this sweet girl. 💛Books+smoothies+sunshine
. your shadow
is dark but beautiful.
The one, who you love and who loves you, with all the dark sides.. Don’t wanna say it’s easy all the time, but this person is the one, who shows you what it really means, to love and to fight for love.
