Tomorrow may be your last - Memoir for Yasmin

Tuesday, 16 September 2014

16/09/2012, I remember that date like it was yesterday, and now today 16/09/2014 two years on from the tragic passing of Yasmin, the pain is still fresh, the memories ever so real, like it was yesterday and her laugh ringing in my ears loud and clear as if she was still here. As I write this, I still am finding it hard to process the fact that she is actually gone, that I will never see her face again or speak to her again, and her death still affects me heavily.
 However, Yazzy I know you’re with god now, resting, not having to go through pain anymore and I’m happy for you, I really hope you’re still smiling up there because your smile was absolutely beautiful. I remember the first time I saw you, dressed in those white coloured three quarter length trousers that you insanely loved and the white cardigan, hair pulled up into a side pony. I remember feeling jealous because you were dating the boy I had a crush on, but even then through my jealousy I just remember there being something about you that was just amazingly cool and I wanted to be your friend. You laughed loud and smiled wide and from that moment you touched my heart and cut through all the jealousy. When you smiled at me I knew you were an angel, a kind hearted soul who just adored life. It’s sad to see you go Yas, but I know you’re in a much better place and out of pain.  And so in your absence in order to honour your memory I have vowed that I will live my life to the fullest, respectfully of course, but taking chances in life and taking advantage of certain opportunities, I will try to do what can be done today as opposed to putting things off till tomorrow as tomorrow may never arrive. I know there’s so much that you achieved in the short life that you had, and there’s so much you still wasn’t able to achieve, I will try to ensure that I don’t take my opportunities for granted and grab what I can, as I may never get the chance again. Rest in peace Yas, and keep smiling over all of us as we are still grieving in your absence and need the remarkable strength that you had right up until the end! Forever in my thoughts. xx

And the moral is live every day as if it is your last.
