I don’t know how you are so familiar to me
Or why it feels less like I am getting to know you
and more as though I am remembering who you are.
How every smile, every whisper,
brings me closer to the impossible conclusion
that I have known you before,
I have loved you before,
In another time,
A different place,
some other existence.
This is a tribute to my mom, Sannie Van Zyl who passed away on the 30th September 2018. She will leave a big gap in our lives.
Mom, we are so sad that you left us – you will leave a big gap in our lives – we will miss you but we have all the good memories you left us with. Those of us that shared the last few days with you here on earth know that you have suffered a lot but now you are without pain and in a better place with God.
gave you so many talents and you used them all: I will remember you for:
- the beautiful toys you made
- your beautiful garden
- your lovely singing voice
Mom, I will
remember your kind nature and your Christian way of life. You were always such
a positive person (sometimes too positive for your own good), always smiled and
ready to give a helping hand to anyone in need.
May you rest in peace.
