Eulogies to our Loved ones Stung by Death

I read somewhere that the death of a loved one is a curious thing. We all know that our time in this world is limited and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. 

It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.

The saying “everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear”, does not apply to death no matter how fearful we are of it. Death is inevitable and no form of courage can save us from biting the dust.

Death is inevitable and no form of courage can save us from biting the dust.

While we are privileged to be reading this because we are alive and hopefully well, some of us have had a  close feeling of what death feels like. Some of us miss our loved ones who’ve been cuddled by the cold hands of death.

To commemorate this month of love, February, I decided to use this platform to feature some eulogies to our loved ones who left us too early even though we’re made to believe the creator knows best.

If you had the opportunity to say some words to them, what will that be?

If you’ll love to share, Muttering Minds will be featuring eulogies from February 17th till February 22nd, 2020.

You can take Mutterers through the following: 

  • Your relationship with them.
  • How you got the news of their death.
  • Did you have any premonition before that?
  • Your perception about death before they died.
  • Your perception about death after they died.
  • If you could turn back the hands of time, what would you do differently with them?
  • Are you over the grieve or not?
  • If you could say one last thing to them, what will it be.

I look forward to reading stories about how people deal with the loss of a loved one.

I still have not gotten over the scenario of holding my best friend’s father who was like my father too as the cold hands snatched him away.

Looking forward to this, but kinda scared and skeptical about it. Don’t really understand how people cope with loosing a loved one 😭

Lost my dad at 12, he was in his 30s too. His death didn’t mean too much to me then. All I knew was play. The reality set in the day he was buried. Lots of lone grieving that night and beyond. As I grew older, I felt d void his demise left even more. I’m a grown man now and I dey tell u, d memories still dey fresh.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
