Onvoorwaardelike Liefde

Sy sit voor oor, gebuig en rug krom

Haar gesig met permanente lyne

Maar steeds n gesig vol liefde

Haar lippe glad en sag soos myne

Sy kyk op en glimlag, en dit maak my dag

Vol liefde is haar druk, en ek smag vir dit nog elke dag

Ek mis jou 

*
Ek verlang na jou wysheid

Ek moes ma geluister het
Jou arms was my le plek

Dus waar ek veilig gevoel het

Jy vryf my kop, en ek is weg

Jy soen my op my voorkop en sus my aan die slaap

Ek vra n duisend vrae, ek wil verstaan

Dan sy jy, “Laat dit maar gaan”

“Ek is lief vir jou, en dit is al wat saak maak”

Jou woorde het my gestil

Jou liefde was goed vir my siel

Hoe wens ek jy was nog hier

Ek wil jou net trots gemaak het

Ek mis jou 

*
Dit was altyd net ek en jy, hand aan hand

Ek mis jou eindlose vingers

Altyd sag, warm en geknoop aan myne

Nie weer was daar n liefde soos joune

Jy was beeldskoon, binne en buite

Jou vel was sag, jou hare dun soos die wind

Hoe wens ek jy kon sien

Maak ek jou trots?

Ek mis jou 

*
Die pad was swaar sonder jou

Ek probeer om te onthou

Die herrineringe is nog vars, dus soos gister

Ek verbeel my ek ruik jou 

Ek mis jou

Ek wil regop loop soos jou

Trots en met n glimlag

Ek is hier deur jou

Ek is die moeder wat ek is vandag, deur jou
Hoe wens ek jy kon hulle sien

Jy sal trots gewees het

En dus omdat jy my moeder was

Jy was my voetspore, jy was my alles

My hart is seer

Hoor jy as ek praat? 

Sien jy as ek treur?

Ek mis jou

The things I remember the most about you is your smile..your inner beauty,  the tip of your head to the side when you spoke, your soft spoken voice, the shape of your fingers and the shine in your hair..

I took you to the beach for some fun, unknowingly it would be my last opportunity.
We going to miss you..

image

I had the opportunity to sit at your feet during your last days, unknown to all of us and I thank God I was granted that.
We going to miss you..

Sitting around the table, full house, good company, good laughs and your endless calmness, your forgiving nature, your giving nature,  is what we going to miss..

image

We look back and we say…”if only we knew, we would do things differently” If only I stayed longer, if only I combed your hair, if only I said ” I love you too”, if only I answered your phone call…But I thank God for the short time I was given to get to know you. The beautiful soul..

I see how much you cared for Vida and she’s going to miss you the most. You were there when she needed a friend, thank you. And yet you granted her that opportunity to spend your last days with her, thank you.
She’s lost a good friend

image

We make plans, but God has his own plans for us. The ones left behind are grieving your passing. We ask, why so sudden..You were so young, you were a good person, a good friend, gone too soon..why why why..

image

You sent me a beautiful message and every time I play it over in my head, I want to cry. I want to cry for the loss of a beautiful soul, the loss of a good friend, the loss of the most beautiful smile ever..
I am going to miss you Carol
I said to you “get better and let’s go watch the Manhattans” you looked at me and I didn’t understand that look. If only I knew you were telling me that you won’t be around.
You told me “be happy!”….Thank you Carol for your infinite wisdom.

I pray to God that your children and Phillip find peace. I pray that we all find the peace and acceptance. You were suffering and God called you home. He decided he needed you more than what we do.

There’s a vice around my chest, it’s by far the hardest thing to lose a good friend because good friends don’t just come around. It’s a lifelong bond, laughs, dancing, giggles, jokes, sadness, disagreements and unconditional love… We going to miss you Carol

image

You were hurting and we have to be less selfish and thank God for taking you out of that discomfort. We need to accept that you are where you should be, and because it’s the right time. If only we could be this accepting..If only we accept that all of this was written already..it was written that we’ll only have you for a certain time, you would only laugh, dance and giggle with us until a certain time.

I pray that you rest in peace. Don’t worry about us, let us mourn you Carol. Let us cry for the loss of a very good friend.

And thank you for allowing me the short and awesome time with you. Thank you for listening and nodding. Thank you for always smiling. May you smile from up above…

We going to miss you Carol..go on and be the smiling Angel looking down on us. And we will celebrate your life because that is what you’d want us to do. Nothing will fill this void, this loss but we will hold onto your beautiful memory and the memories we’ve shared.

Rest in Peace my good friend..
