    Shall I wither and fall like an autumn leaf,
    From this deep sorrow – from this painful grief?
    How can I go on or find a way to be strong?
    Will I ever again enjoy life’s sweet song?

    Sometimes a warm memory sheds light in the dark
    And eases the pain like the song of a Meadow Lark.
    Then it flits away on silent wings and I’m alone;
    Hungering for more of the light it had shone.

    Shall grief’s bitter cold sadness consume me,
    Like a winter storm on the vast angry sea?
    How can I fill the void and deep desperate need
    To replant my heart with hope’s lovely seed?

    Then I look at a photo of your playful smiling face
    And for a moment I escape to a serene happy place;
    Remembering the laughter and all you would do,
    Cherishing the honest, caring, loving spirit of you.

    Shall spring’s cheerful flowers bring life anew
    And allow me to forget the agony of missing you?
    Will spring’s burst of new life bring fresh hope
    And teach my grieving soul how to cope?

    Sometimes I’ll read a treasured card you had given me
    And each word’s special meaning makes me see,
    The precious gift of love I was fortunate to receive,
    And I realize you’d never want to see me grieve.

    Shall summer’s warm brilliant sun bring new light,
    And free my anguished mind of its terrible plight?
    Will its gentle breezes chase grief’s dark clouds away,
    And show me a clear path towards a better day?

    When I visit the grave where you lie in eternal peace,
    I know that death and heaven brought you release;
    I try to envision your joy on that shore across the sea,
    And, until I join you, that’ll have to be enough for me.

    For all the remaining seasons of my life on earth,
    There’ll be days I’ll miss your merriment and mirth,
    And sometimes I’ll sadly long for all the yesterdays;
    Missing our chats and your gentle understanding ways.

    Yet, the lessons of kindness and love you taught me,
    And the good things in life you’ve helped me to see;
    Linger as lasting gifts that comfort and will sustain,
    Until I journey to that peaceful shore and see you again.

    Look for me in Rainbows
    Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
    In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
    Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

    Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
    In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
    Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.

    It won’t be forever, the day will come and then
    My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

    Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
    Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
    Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

    Just wish me to be near you,
    And I’ll be there with you.

    I will wait for you…
    I will wait for you…
    Though we never had a chance to say goodbye,
    Remember me…
    When winter snows are falling through a quiet sky
    I’ll remember you
    When, in our darkest hour,
    You held my hand and prayed I wouldn’t go,
    But a silent voice called out to me;
    My time had come, and I had to travel Home…

    Since then, I know your life has never been the same,
    For I visit you each day:
    So many times I’ve felt your pain:
    I’ve watched you cry:
    And I’ve heard you call my name…

    But now, further along life’s road I stand
    In a timeless world, just beyond your sight,
    Waiting for the day when I can take your hand and bring you across
    to this land of Golden Light…

    Till then, remember me, you understand-and try not to cry.
    But if you do:
    Let your tears fall
    For the happiness and joy we knew,
    And for the special love we shared,
    For love can never die.

    The Final Flight
    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way, I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.
    If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My Life’s been full, I savoured much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’ touch.
    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

    Today I went to the newly purpose built school… and I only wished you were here, so you see by your self the great change ! all modern class rooms spacious & bright… all well equipped. The stadiums you would have loved , the court yards and the auditorium, the music room, the library….. all you have wanted from the school for your kids is there !!! your dream come true…..

    You wanted the best for them ! and I know they will get the best…..

    I know you would have been very proud of them… they are doing well. Progressing in their courses , blooming characters and grow nicely.

    So much of you in them !!! so many memories flow by …. I see you at school, performing, competing and growing……

    You should have been seeing all this happening ! but alas you are too far, but deep down, I know you are watching over us … from far away you send your love and care…..

    I miss you Rami…. miss every day more & more…..I send you all my love and my prayers , asking God tor his mercy upon you and all of us…..

    My eyes look into yours , but no longer through your soul, I only have a memory of the light of life in your eyes through the pictures we have left behind.

    Your smell of your after shave I used to adore, the smell of you when I would open the door,
    I miss your scent, the sweetness of you, the smell of cigarette smoke left in the air sweetened with your scent,
    But I can no longer smell.

    Your beautiful smile that warmed every heart, your laugh so humble it made people feel secure and safe with you.

    You used to look after me from the day I was born, a baby sister for you to hold.

    We had such a bond that was so special to me, I know your no longer here but that would forever still be.

    My heart beats so fast I forget to breathe, people say move on! It’s been 2 years but they don’t know what you meant to me.

    You knew how to make everything alright.
    When you were here it all seemed right
    The beauty is the way you would come say sorry if we ever, rarely would fight.

    I miss our talks,
    I miss your words,
    I miss you more each day that has and will pass.

    I just want to hold you tight, and never let go neither day or night.

    I wish I can hear your heartbeat that kept you alive.

    I hope that my tears are not hurting you my dear, for I know you hated it when I would cry or be in fear.

    But forgive me my brother for being hurt so bad, I hope that in heaven you will not be mad.

    My tears for you shall fill oceans across the world,
    for you were my only only brother that I just want to hold.

    It was so hard feeling your body so cold,
    “He’s in peace now” is what I would be told.

    But no words can ever describe the loss of you my brother, my everything, my life.

    I wanted to grow old together side by side, I wanted you to give my hand with our father to the man that would one day have been, something now i will never see.

    I know I’m not perfect and I do wrong but I hope you forgive me and help me be strong.

    I hope from your life I can take in pride, and one day I can be like you in my life.

    I wish you would come visit me in my dreams, just so I could feel again that I can believe.

    Rami my brother and the love of my life in my heart you shall always be the one who brightens the light.

    I hope that you are truly resting in peace, for I still won’t ever believe your deceased.

    I love you so very much,
    May the angels protect you where you are above

    I hope once the book is available for the public, to see more and more contributes from those inspired by his life.

    I only wish Rami was here to see for himself that his dream is slowly coming through…
