In loving memory

The hands that fed me

The mouth that admonished me

The strength to suffer in silence

The courage to leave so that we may not suffer

The heart that loved me

The one whom I miss

My Mom…


Left a year ago...

The life you had shared with your mum is something to celebrate, to remember & to be thankful for.

Always remember that your beloved mum is now in a place of eternal joy.

Hi Zewt

I always wondered what you look like. Then I saw your mom's picture and something told me that you look a lot like her.
I came to the comments and some of your readers comfirmed it.

She may have gone but she will always remain in your heart.

I feel for you, zewt...for time can never erase the pain of losing someone that one loves so dearly. But believe it in your heart that one that is so much loved will never die; she lives on in you and your children.

Tragedy is when many only realise it when that someone is gone. In the words of our local poet/writer/columnist,actor (etc?) Kee Thuan Chye:
"...I think of you
a figure forgotten
in hours not-of-need
but a comforter of the past
who caught cockroaches with bare hands...
...I'm still afraid of cockroaches
But when I think
how little love I've shown you in return,
I sometimes cry."

sheesh! how pompous of some ppl to come advertise their presence in your blog. and this post of all post. how self-centered. that's why i've never liked politics, never did, never will.

i can't believe it has been one year. as a spectator, it was very fast. i don't think u share the same view. everyday must hv been hard for you. *hugs*

Manal said...

Hey Zewt,

I was actually looking forward for that 1 year anniversary post since the day she's in demise. And in conjunction with maulidul rasul and good friday celebration, may her soul rest in peace and may she continues to smile up there in heaven.

By the way, she has a big pair of eyes for a chinese woman.

A moment of silent offering in honour of ur mum.

Zewt
It's good to know after one year of her absence, you still think and miss her dearly. I have followed your blog since then.
Just remember she had instilled good values in you and we as children should try to be good to carry on her legacy.
Lest we forget, we should also start treating our closed ones who are still alive with appreciation (no matter how frustrated we could be with them sometimes) and not wait till when they are gone, and regret not having to spend enough time with them.
Please read yesterday's Star - this fine young man loves his parents so much that he is willing to go for a second option for his future plans as he didn't wish to burden them.
Here's the link just in case you miss it http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/3/20/nation/20674124&sec=nation
Have a good weekend.

kennymah said...

Time passes so fast
But some things do last
The love of a mother
Warms like none other

1 year's gone by really fast. I still remember reading the moving posts you made for her and your family when she passed away like it was just some time ago.

Take Care zewt.

littlepolaris said...

Your mummy looks beautiful. It's just so difficult to miss someone isn't it? Until today I still cry when I think about my grandpa dat passed away more than 12 years ago.

drumsticks said...

Have a blessed Easter Zewt. And I agree with many here that you do look like your mom. As a mom myself, I always feel happy & proud whenever ppl commented my son looks like me. So, there you go ... ;-)

sharlydia said...

i only saw ur pic once..the wedding pic..aha..and like what everyone says,and i agree, you look alot like her!

Aleckii said...

Sorry to hear about your mother. She must have been a great woman, to be able to raise a man like yourself.

Anyway, her legacy lives on in you, and that's what matter.

My best friend's father passed away 3 days ago in Malaysia, while we're still in Kursk, we were in a mad rush booking tickets, etc, to get him back home in time for his dad's funeral. It's so sad, it was totally unexpected.

PabloPabla said...

She's with Him above and you will all be reunited one day (with me joining :D )

jam said...

She will be always in your heart.

Hey zewt!

Albert Yap said...

Mom is always besides us...no matter where she goes....She will always in our mind....

MeLiSsA said...

although you may only have the memories now, but remember it lives on forever..

take care.

myop101 said...

it is never easy to lose someone you love. i can only offer my condolences.

for the love she gave,
is the love you share,
for the admonitions she said,
is the wisdom you gain,
life that she gave,
is the life you gain,
in death she may have parted,
in death you will meet again,
so live on dear friend,
worry no more of the yesterdays,
for her mark she left,
will be your beacon in the coming days.

Rashikaps said...
