AMINA BALA SHAGARI – Will love always you, you would have been 36 today, may Allah rest your beautiful soul as people continue to say your name everyday. You were the kind of person to leave that kind of impact in your wake and slumber, I am sorry we drifted apart, I wanted you to have peace, I was so proud of myself for letting her have you to herself, ashe ashe… it wouldn’t even come close to being enough.
My darling friend, in different points of my life you were everything to me: A brother who pulled my scarf when I did wrong, a friend who knew me best. We decided to get married out of pure friendship, how strong was that bond, and when we couldn’t we still found our way back to being friends? My darling, I don’t have enough words… you once asked “what would you do if I die?” I promptly started crying and abusing you for suggesting you would die leaving me behind. And those tears of mine shocked did you.
Well, if you could see me now, the thing that was most endearing to me that probably meant nothing to you was the way you never ever ever allowed me to cross the road without you holding my wrist. You used to infuriate me before I came to expect it, I am like “see this guy. before him didn’t I cross the road by myself?” [Smiles] And even when we fought you held on, even if we didn’t talk you held on, it was funny, and it was special because it was not the hand but the wrist, as if to assure yourself you wouldn’t let go. That was who you were until I suggested I wanted your jealous wife to have peace. I wouldn’t call I said, you would, and you did whenever you could. You saw me whenever you could, bye my love.
May Allah links us up in Jannah, we will love Aleesha.
