One Year Later…

💌 Dear Mamajee,

It’s been a year since you were gone. How am I supposed to feel? Well, before this, I know I felt sad. No, more than sad. I was heartbroken. Confused. Speechless. I couldn’t think straight. I felt like looking up to the sky and screaming.

But at the same time, I couldn’t make a sound. In the days leading up until now, honestly, I was anxious. What would it be like, knowing that it would have been a year since you left us? How would I feel now when before this, I felt like I couldn’t live without you? Would I always be in grief? Would I forget you completely?

Yet here I am, one year later, loving you and remembering you. So what’s the answer to that very first question? How am I supposed to feel? It’s simple – I feel relieved. Relieved that I have made it this far. Relieved that you still live on in our hearts. Relieved that I still have so much to be grateful for – the loving, supporting family I have around me, and the memories in which I can still find you.

And after all, while we may not be able to talk to you, we know that you’re waiting for us all to be reunited again. All I pray for is that Allah accepts my special gift to you in this holy month of Ramadhan.

Love,

Omar Mukhtar

Thinking of you…

Today was just a normal school day. We learnt about the usual subjects, Maths, Literacy etc. It wasn’t really an exciting day at school, you could say. But coming back home was the highlight of the day. I don’t mean because I got to rest for a little while (impossible to rest when I have this blog! 😀 ), it’s because I came home and found a letter from Alex, one of my best friends from Moseley (old school)! I was so astonished. I hadn’t heard from any of my old friends for months! It was all just so surprising.  I picked up the letter and opened it. I was extremely shocked when I found out that Alex had written 10 pages of A4 paper! It looked like he had written about the whole month when I read it. When I finished reading it, I felt like crying. To receive 10 pages of writing through the post from my best friend from my old school, it’s just too much! Now, I can’t write for too long coz I have a student council meeting tomorrow so I need some beauty sleep. Be sure to come back and visit my blog! Bye! 😉

bff
