When death comes calling

The numbness.

The shock.

The sadness.

The tears.

Unbelief.

The questions.

The sleepless nights.

The thoughts that run through your head.

The family of the departed.

How do they feel?

The stillness.

Everything freezing in time.

The longing for the past.

Times spent with the departed.

The memories.

The sorrow.

Things you wish you could change.

Things you wish you didn’t do.

Things you wish you did.

Things you wish you didn’t say.

Things you wish you said.

The emptiness.

Death is the end of us all. Either death or rapture. Somehow, some day, we all depart this world.

Where we gonna end up? What would be said about us? How have we lived our lives?

Live your life like you would die the next second. Always prepared to leave this world. You never can tell when it would happen.

RIP aunty Bolaji.

  1. May her soul rest in peace…

    The one line that caught me, regrets for things said and unsaid. I wish I would remember that daily and try to live each day like it would be my last.
    Sigh.. This has brought back memories
