Anything but Usual...

Today is Saturday
The Sun is shining
It's 11am 
People are;
doing laundry
having brunch
getting ready to go to the mall
The usual?
Well, Sarah is being buried 
at 25...

She was my mate in High School. Bunked next to me in Form One. My mum never ceased asking of her especially after my cousin passed from sickle cell because Sarah had it too.
She fought valiantly and had a smile even in her pain that re-assured you when she was the one in pain.
Against the odds, 
She finished high school
finished Uni
seemed to be getting stronger each day
took ill
at 25...

She has probably been buried already, time difference and all
I’m sitting here looking out my window, beautiful day. People going about their usual business. And yet it’s anything but usual for the people who have to bury or lose their loves ones today.
More importantly, It’s anything but usual for those who never got to see today. RIP Sarah!


  1. o chale i remember her smiling face. she had such a positive attitude. May she RIP, and may God comfort her family and friends

  2. I'm really sorry for your loss. may she rest in peace, i wish you and her family much strength.

  3. :( May her Soul Rest in Peace..

  4. Ampong, you know! *sigh* I don't even know how her mum must be taking it. One of the worst tragedies is for parents to have to bury their children.
    @ Gee: I just keep sighing too
    @ Michelle: I am just praying for her family and trying to convince myself she's in a better place with no pain now.
    @Didi: Yea o, may she enjoy this deep painless sleep in God's bosom.

  5. I am sorry for your loss. I love your writing.
