A year after


A year after your demise, I can still hear your voice singing loudly around the house 


A year after, I still perceive your choking perfume, that particular one I don’t like, that makes me want to choke you


A year after, I still hear your voice telling me to dress like a lady and act less like a man. You were not a fan of the tomboyish lifestyle and that’s part of why you think I am not married yet. Lol


A year after, I can still hear you bragging about how you will protect me and not allow anything bad happen to me. You did not take me for granted. 


A year after, I can still hear you saying any man that wants to marry me is in soup because they will have to go through you. 


A year after, I still want you to disturb me about what you should wear out. 


A year after, I still want to call you ‘brother Niyi’ when I need a favor from you. Lol


A year after, I still see us fight and raise our voice at each other. And what was always the reason of our fights?- Food! We are both foodies but our ‘foodielism’ are not on the same level at all. 


A year after, I still laugh at you being silly around the house while dancing and making funny videos


A year after, I still see how strongly you support and push everyone around you to be the best version of themselves. 


A year after, I still see you being a strong backbone to everyone you know. 


A year after, I still feel your warm bear hugs. 


A year after, I still hear you call my full name like 100 times in a day!!! Kilode?


A year after, I still miss being your accountant.


A year after, I still want to hear you say you love me once in a blue moon. Smh. We both know you love me deeply. 


A year after, I still want to listen to  you argue with people while I just watch and laugh. 


A year after, I still see you feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and being a voice of peace in Africa. 


A year after, I still hurt like it was a minute ago you passed. I miss you everyday and my heart literally drops at the thought of not seeing you again. 


A year after, you are still my brother and I love you more than ever. 


Keep resting in Power, Akinniyi Raphael Akinbowale ❤️
