Today is my husband’s funeral ceremony (Shradh).
I felt like sinking from last night.
All the memories and flashes were running like a movie in my mind.
Today I decided to create this post, instead of sulking and crying.
I’m sharing this open letter as a message to the universe
with the hope that my emotional energy will reach my husband.
“I wish I could have told you how much I love and respect you at the final time.
We often fail to understand the importance of a person while they are with us.
I am glad I did not lose the opportunity to express my feelings to you while you were around.
That cup of tea and conversation that we shared on 1st December 2018 is one of the most cherished memories of my life now.
You loved and supported me always.
You kept every promise of “till death do us apart”
I am happy that I married you and shared life together.
May God bless you and showers peace & happiness on you, where ever you are today, my dear.
Until we meet in the next lifetime… I will keep you in my prayers.”
