“Precious MEMORIES of my deceased brother
I remembered when you came home for
the first time your face was pink as
a strawberry. Your hair slick to your skull what
a cute face to behold. I was excited to have
a brother, you sure was a special gift sent
from Heaven above.
I remembered how you’ll never drink your
tea or fall asleep if you did not have a piece
of sponge to play with, in your tiny hands.
Time rolled by and you started to creep and then
walk. I enjoyed pushing you in your stroller, sometimes
holding you in my arms. Everywhere I went I assured
you were at my side, never wanting to leave you in
harm’s way. I can still see your lovely smile , when I came
to collect you after school, you were so delighted to see me.
You told everyone I was your best sister and sure
I was I didn’t like anyone hitting on you. You had me around
your finger doing little chores for you. You were so smart
I couldn’t even con you a dollar. I remember when
mum sent you for ice cream by Mr. Reggie you will eat out
the ice cream and then come home and say it melted.
What a tricky little fellow you were, LOL.
I remembered you being so fresh up and mannish you
tried making your own breakfast at times. Oh
what a mess that use to be. When granny came
you made her tea and sandwich. Would
anyone believe you were only four years then?
I marvel at your hospitality and love at your tender age.
You tried washing wares many times on your
own. I remember how you placed a chair
at the sink and went to work. No one made you
do it , I guess you were just helpful in your
nature. You loved going to church , I vividly
remembered building you a tiny pulpit where
you could have preached on the steps outside,
and you certainly did a mighty fine job.
You were so young but knew right from wrong,
and will always tell on us whenever we did wrong.
Your favorite song was “Excellent Jesus, you’re
still excellent in all the earth.
Then it was just after your fifth birthday. You
took in ill . I was in standard five I had just finished
exams to go to a new school. You had to be hospitalized
it ripped my heart apart to see cords and needles
attached to you. I was only twelve years old but
I knew it was my duty to come see you every day
forgetting about what time the school bell rang,
I had to see you before I could have started my day.
I prayed and begged God to please heal you
and don’t ever take you away from me. I
remembered as your time got closer to depart
from this world you started looking paler . Yet
you still tried to come off the bed and watch TV
or played with the other kids.
I couldn’t help but cry to see you that way and
right now I am crying as I type today. It was April 28th, 2000
when you died. I felt all my hopes and dreams shattered
right before me. NO!!! This isn’t true maybe it
was a mistake and they thought it was you.
GOD sent His angels for you. I know God
Knows best and He alone knows why He took
you from me. I believe with all my
heart that we’ll meet again some
glorious day , but as for now I still miss you
and never will stop until I see you again.
I won’t ever forget the memories I possess of
you I will cherish them forever in my heart.
