My Angel From Above Essay

1405 words - 6 pages

To my best friend,
Life isn’t the same without you. There isn’t a day it goes by that I don’t think about you. I miss spending time with you and just laughing or making fun of my sister together. I miss getting ready to go to the park to watch the soccer team play and spot “our guys”. I miss trying on your sisters’ dresses and heels and hiding her make up. I called your mom two days ago, and we were talking about you, she told me that she had found a pair of my pjs in one of your drawers and I told her to left them there just in case I wanted to sleepover there and I had forgotten my stuff like I always did. She started crying and so did I. Boston is just like your sister told us about, ...view middle of the document...

Mawi wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and went out of the window and she landed near the rocks where she died instantly when her head hit a rock. There I was left alone, wondering how I was going to make it through school without her, whom was I supposed to talk about guys and tell all of my secret crushes, whom was I supposed to call my best friend? Sometimes life takes unexpected turns and unexpected people away from one.
I couldn’t believe she was gone forever and we never got to say goodbye. I didn’t even say sorry for not being there for her in her moments of agony or when her mom was crying next to her death body. I can relate to Sonia Sanchez’s 4 Haiku (for Nubia) in Morning Haiku, which is a collection of poems that celebrate different themes written in haiku, because I experienced the loss of a close friend. Mawi was to me more than a friend she was my sister. I’d never forget all those sleepovers we had, and Sunday morning brunches at her house with chocolate pancakes and her laugh. She knew exactly how to make me laugh and brighten my day. She loved combing my hair and painting my nails. But what I miss the most about her is that she was always there for me.
I remember the day of her funeral, I refused to get out of bed because that day meant that it was true that she was gone and I just wasn’t ready to let her go. I couldn’t let go of my best friend; we were supposed to do everything together. How was I supposed to say goodbye to someone I wasn’t ready to let go? She wasn’t supposed to die; she had a long life to live and I needed her by my side. We had planned our entire life with each other and now life didn’t seem the same without her. Normally she would wake up next to me and held my hand through the hard days telling me everything was going to be fine, but now as much as I looked for her hand, she wasn’t there anymore. There I was alone, trying to find why life is so unfair.
I know I have an angel in heaven looking out for me and probably bothering God all day telling him to give me the best because I deserve it, that what I would do if I was her. Sometimes when I’m alone I think she’s there with me and I talk to her, even though she doesn’t respond I knew her so well that I know how she would have responded. I know she went home, right where she belonged and she’s in a save place where she dances in the clouds and eats all the candy she was never allowed...
