EPILOGUE Day by day I think of you, How can all of this be true? Even after so long, Just the thought of you makes me cry, I never even got the chance to say goodbye, I don’t know if it will ever get better, I always smell your familiar scent, It makes me think of all of the times we’ve spent, So many things I never got to say, I never imagined you’d ever be so faraway, You were my brother, And I loved you like no other, In my heart you’ll always be, Until I breathe my last, I will never forget your soothing voice, I would take your place if I had a choice, But now I have to let you rest, Because I know you are in a better place, Although without you, my world’s a mess, I miss you with all my heart, I wish we never had to part, But I know you are always by my side, So now, I guess this is my goodbye. Rest in peace Basheer M Bello.
It was 20th November, 2012, exactly a year after Basheer had left us. His memories would forever remain evergreen in my heart……….until I breath my last. I thought as I dropped the pen and closed my diary wiping tears away from my eyes.
