Tributes | Rami Makhzoumi

    يا رامي شو بدي قلك
    بعيد ميلادك مشتقلك
    انشا الله
    بيوم الدين
    بواب الجنة بتفتحلك
    و بتفوت و راسك مرفوع
    حتى الجنة بتلبقلك
    كل عام و انت بخير يا غالي

    As the rain falls and washes your grave stone the thunder roars as it calls your name in the skies.

    The brightness of the lightening that lights the sky with your aura , surrounds us all around.

    As your grave is being washed, it’s as if the tears of the sky falls upon you as you sleep as if the tears that fall from our eyes .

    As the sky rumbles and ground shakes , you my brother are fast asleep, serenity and in peace .

    Your birthday each year is a celebration of your life but also your death .

    You are in the sky, the clouds , the sun, the rain, the rivers, the mountains , the oceans and the sea.

    Forever you are with us and forever in our hearts.

    We miss your voice, your smile and your eyes.

    I miss the only brother that I can call mine.

    I hope on your birthday we can make your wishes come true …

    My only wish also is to one day again to be with you.

    I love you Rami. My brother , my mentor and my closest friend.

    Happy Birthday ,

    Forever your little sister Camo

    31st October 1977, the day that changed my life, the day I held in my hands our baby and saw the miracle of life, miracle of love…. Rami was born…… it was the beginning of a special bonding that grew with time. I remember his birthdays celebrations as he was growing up, from simple ones to the extravagant ones as he grew older….. As a kid he enjoyed the spooky Halloween parties !!! later football parties, then disco parties….. ending it up with his 21st birthday party, when he surprised every body wearing a Scottish Kiln with all the out fit accessories !! he was amazing…… that was it for parties , from now on , it returned to simple Happy birthday greetings…. He told me ,( mum we don’t need to celebrate our birthdays, every day is a birthday, every day we are born again, every day we celebrate life)….. and that how the years passed, but we used to surprise him some times , and just tell him for the kids sake, let us blow the candles & cut the cake !!!!!

    The last 3 years we would go to visit him and wish he was with us …. time is passing, sadly he is away….. today he would have been 37 years…….. 4th time with out him … year after year it will be with out him, but we will celebrate his birth , his life , and his memory …..

    I know my wish will never come true here on Earth,,,, But I know his spirit is hovering around, I know his soul is never far and it will never die….. our souls meet though our bodies don’t, and one day we will rejoin ……………………

    My love to you will never die………

    I was looking through my photos the other day and stumbled on a photo from my sweet sixteen. Rami made my sweet sixteen the best birthday to date. He was so generous and had a heart of gold. I think about him a lot and wish he was here to watch his three beautiful young daughter grow up, but I know he is watching over all of us, smiling. I love you Rami and miss you very much. Rest in peace.

    Though I never knew before nor will I ever know again after ….. I am so grateful for having been loved by my brother Rami though no longer here, he was the only one who made me know what it meant and felt like to be a sister …and because of that beautiful bond we shared and held so dear to my heart… I find it so difficult to go on without being a sister…. His sister ….

    …As time goes by, times get harder and the more I realise I needed him then, but so much more how much I need him now and will tomorrow . It’s hard living knowing you were only loved by that one person ,after your parents love of course, and that one person left this world too early, without warning, without the chance to say goodbye or have one more day… Oh my dear brother the things I would say….

    However long my journey may be, I hope it will one day again be you and me, all i can pray is that i will be with you one day again, you be my angel that opens his wings so I won’t be afraid… As you always did here on earth , my protector , my saviour, my brother , my friend…

    Look down at me from heaven, walk beside me through my journey and guide me to the path of happiness so that again I will feel peace within the deepest part of my mind..my body and my soul…

    Love you ever so much Rami and more and more each day , missing you dearly ..especially now that you are so far away….

    Forever you little sister …

    The new school year is starting soon. I remember in September 2010 , how excited Rami was to go with the girls to get all they need for starting school in Beirut…. here we are four years later getting ready for school again, what a difference between then & now…. Only wish he was here to see how the girls are blooming, growing and progressing….. University starting too…. we will have the first lecture in this year’s activities of Rami’s corporate governance chair series at the Olayan School of Business at AUB, as well as a round table… soon . keeping his dreams alive….hoping that spreading the awareness about the necessity of CG for companies, banks, government will be a tool to reach best business performance that Rami aimed for. Mum, You have left us too soon…. the pain of losing you will never go, but knowing that your spirit is always soaring high, that you are always around every day, every minute eases a bit the void you left behind. May you RIP for ever…… and our Love keep you alive in our hearts….

    Habibi,, visiting your resting place and seeing your name engraved on the white marble is so hard… it just tells me true you are not with us any more… true I wont see you any more…. but when I listen to the Ayat describing what is awaiting you in heaven, I imagine you there living a serene happy life… yes you are not on earth any more true, but your journey is continuing there in another world….( khalidena fiha), having an eternal life !!!!

    Nouri visited you last week too, when the boys visit Beirut they go to you, Toufic, Saif, Fouad, Karim.. and others too. They all wish you were still here for they miss you as much as I do….they see your girls and through them they see you !!!

    Ramadan is reaching an end, Eid is here and we will be celebrating with out you sharing with us the festivities… your place is always there every minute every day, your spirit is sharing with us our days and night…. I know deep down you are looking over us , keeping an eye on us, sending us your thoughts ……

    Kul Eid wa inta bikhair habibi…. may your soul rest in peace …

    Love you and miss you terribly.

    My heart forever my dear brother will be broken ….I truly am finding it so hard for life to go on without you…

    Don’t leave me in all this pain
    Don’t leave me out in the rain
    Come back and bring back my smile
    Come and take these tears away
    I need your arms to hold me now
    The nights are so unkind
    Bring back those nights when I held you beside me

    Unbreak my heart
    Say you’ll love me again
    Undo this hurt you caused
    When you walked out the door
    And walked outta my life
    Uncry these tears
    I cried so many nights
    Unbreak my heart
    My heart

    Take back that sad word goodbye
    Bring back the joy to my life
    Don’t leave me here with these tears
    Come and kiss this pain away
    I can’t forget the day you left
    Time is so unkind
    And life is so cruel without you here beside me

    Unbreak my heart
    Say you’ll love me again
    Undo this hurt you caused
    When you walked out the door
    And walked outta my life
    Uncry these tears
    I cried so many nights
    Unbreak my heart
    My heart
    Heart

    Don’t leave me in all this pain
    Don’t leave me out in the rain
    Bring back the nights when I held you beside me

    Unbreak my heart
    Say that you’ll love me again
    Undo this hurt you caused
    When you walked out the door
    And walked outta my life
    Uncry these tears
    I cried so many, many nights
    unbreak my

    Unbreak my heart,
    Come back and say you love me
    Unbreak my heart
    Sweet darlin’
    Without you I just can’t go on
