Death You've Done Me Bad, Again!

What is life if all it brings is misery and sadness? 
They say our sojourn on earth has a purpose 
What purpose has a man who was snatched away by the cold hands of death in his prime come to fulfil? 
In fact what is the whole point of that purpose if it has yet to be accomplished? 
How could there be a God when a being so charming and so steadfast die a death so lonely and so painful? 
How does one come to terms with knowing that the person who was here today ceases to be here tomorrow? 
That a person so loved and admired could be spoken of in the past rather than present? 
That his phone will ring and go unanswered because life has departed his body 
Or non-reply to emails because he has taken his final breathe? 
How does one deal with the hurt of knowing that all desires, aspirations and dreams go with this person to his final resting place? Never to see the light of day.
I really am sad.
I haven't stopped thinking about you.
Your smile and the way you grind your teeth together when you speak.
You taught me to play the Nintendo Wii. 
I was useless with video games before you came along
Dodo was your favorite food. You ate it everything from eba to bread.
You wouldn't drink or smoke and spent so much time in church.
Helping out and being a role model.
You were a true gem and you touched my heart in unquantifiable ways.
I never said I loved you but now I say it
I really love you T and I'll carry you in my heart always.
Rest in peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. Sometimes things like this happen and we are left speechless and unable to comprehend. I remember when I lost a very good friend on a plane crash. I couldn't understand it because she was so young, so full of life and ready to take on the world. Such a good person I just couldn't understand why this happened to her. But God knows best. Someone ones said to me that sometimes, God calls those who have lived worthy lives to him early, because he does not want anything to change who they are in the future. May their souls rest in peace. Amen.

P.s. is this post about a guy named Dawodu?

Parakeet said...

How are u?

My Condolences!
Only God knows! His ways are not our ways. some of us were sent into this world to touch the lives of others and change them for the better...
Sounds like he did just that.

May his soul rest in peace...Amen!

Temite said...

I am doing great thanks. I actually never knew the guy but I have 4 mutual friends with him and all of them have had extremely wonderful things to say about how he touched their lives.

Parakeet said...

@Juiceegal...Thanks for the condolences love. Still trying to understand why his death hit me so bad but eh I guess we never know how much someone means to us until they're no longer there for whatever reason. No he's not the Tee I referred to in my post.
@ALL...many thanks for all your messages. I really appreciate it and it's nice to know that there are many wonderful people out there who care about me. I know T is in a far better place and like his brother said, do not mourn him, pray for him and revel in your memory of him which is exactly what I've been doing. But I cant deny the shock! God knows best. Thanks all once more.

Sorry for your loss dear.
My condolences...

And who was T to you?

A friend, a brother, a cousin?

Parakeet said...

@Afronuts...Thanks. He is a friend. We exchange funny emails everyday at work and my day is never complete without one of his funnies so you can imagine what working is like for me now not reading his mail. But it is well. I cant but thank God for his life cos I know he is in heaven having a feast.
@ALL...once more thanks for the messages. I pray none of us will go through such tragedy again. Amen.

tobenna said...
