There’s no other love like the love for a brother. There’s no other love like the love from a brother.
Another year has passed since my brother’s death. But it still seems like yesterday. We have learned to live our lives without him but the pain is still there – I doubt that will ever go….
It still feels like yesterday when the police knocked on our doors and just seeing their expressions struck dread and fear into our hearts.
It still feels like yesterday having to call dad back from work without revealing why until he stepped foot into the door.
It still feels like yesterday having to tell our other brother on the phone as he freaked out and wouldn’t come home until we told him why we were asking him to come home.
It still feels like yesterday when people came round to supposedly offer their condolences when in fact it turned into a jolly reunion for them all.
It still feels like yesterday when we went to the mortuary to say goodbye to you and it led to nightmares for me.
It still feels like yesterday I could not sleep alone in my room and our sister had to stay with me while our parents went abroad.
It still feels like yesterday that you were still a part of our lives.
Today you are still in our thoughts and will continue to remain in them for as long as we live.
Inna lillahi wa inna illayhi rajioon.
