a woman! or an angel!

I woke up this morning with a sad news, My cousin has died in a car accident in his way to work. I was holding a book on my hand and a couple of tears on my eyes. I decided to  take a long walk on the Portland river side. Walking has been part of my life ritual. As I walked forward to the river side, My memories took me backward to the forgettable past. Back to our childhood, when we sat together awake all night with our silly stories about the big giant monster. We both knew that we were lying to each other but we keep telling it over and over and laugh at our selves. We grew up and each of us chose a different path in life. I haven’t seen him for a long time, maybe for 5 years. My mom recently told me that he is planning to get married and I told her that he needs a woman that would carry him with her in a life journey to the sky, a woman that would build up his dreams from the tears of her eyes, a woman that would take all his sad memories away by the smile of her face. My mom smiled as she listen to her boy talking. Then she asked: ” what about you sweetheart! don’t you need a woman that would take you to the sky?”. ” I don’t know my lovely mom, I don’t know!” 

My cousin was waiting for a woman to carry him to the sky but fate has chosen otherwise. Fate chose the angles to carry him to the sky with no coming back. and I don’t know who will carry me to the sky, a woman! or an angel!? Only fate knows the answer for such a question!

  1. my condolences, murtadha. I know the pain, perhaps because I lost my grandmother too just two weeks ago. if your cousin hasn’t found his angelic woman on earth, maybe he will in the Hereafter, Inshaallah….

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. One wonders, after such a traumatic and painful event, about fate, God, and what could have been…

    As for you, perhaps a third path will open. Perhaps you will be taken to the sky first by a woman, and then by an angel. InshaAllah.

    My condolences, Murtadha. May he rest in peace.

    I hope you find a beautiful earthly angel many years before you meet the heavenly ones.

    “A woman..an angel.. or perhaps a devil?
    Can’t a woman be all these 3 at the same time?
    Then you will be in trouble, Murtadha, lol…
