I really miss you mum
My mum had battled Diabetes for seven years. Last year, she got into a coma and was diagnosed with meningitis and hypertension. As if the Diabetes was not enough! Anyway, she recovered steadily until early this year when she started getting swollen feet. The doctor then said she had heart failure but gave her medicine saying she would get better.
It was just a week when I was at home and we were planning how we were going to farm this year. I remember that fateful night like it was yesterday. One phone call changed my life forever. Our caretaker called me saying I should look for a taxi to take her to hospital. The last words she said was that she had trouble breathing. She died in hospital on 28th June, 2014 and I wasn’t even there.
Am crying through every sentence am writing. I feel life was too unfair to us. Now that you have gone to be the Lord am left here; alone. Being an only child, I have always had my moments of loneliness. Now I don’t even know how to describe this feeling. Am all by myself. My friend, my confidant, my advisor, my dear mum of 28 years is gone. Home will never be home without you.
Life is busy, and everyone; aunties, cousins even friends have moved on. Some are even urging me to move on. How? The nights are almost unbearable. I miss you every second of the day.
Rest in his eternal arms, mum. Till we meet again.
