The reason why I believe that angels live on earth is because I had the opportunity to meet one.
How can a person be so kind, beautiful in and out, so contented, so true, so strong, so talented, so playful, so free and down to earth?
Anyi was a peaceful place in human form
She loved life so much and made use of every moment. There was no dull moment with Anyi, She loved giving people new names, She called me black diamond and she called herself star beauty. When school closed she’d make us all dance on the table singing high school musical songs. She had a very unique handwriting, she didn’t believe anyone would be able to write exactly like her, her best friend Favour could write almost exactly how she did, good thing is that I’m good at forging writings and signatures so during one of our classes I wrote my note exactly like how she does and waited till the end of class to show her and the other people that was curious to know if I could really do it.
On Sunday evening 24th of November 2019 I got the unacceptable news. When I heard, I was certain that it was just mere rumours but then I felt restless. In a short while, it was confirmed to be true. With tears in my eyes that refused to roll down cause I couldn’t accept the truth, in a second it felt like I just finished from DSS (the name of the secondary school we both attended) the previous day. All the memories we had together in school came flashing back and all I could see was Anyi. I remember how we’d be together after the close of school till our moms were ready to go.
I remember one time after secondary school when I had already travelled to Cyprus I texted her on Facebook and we was sharing our experiences on school life and I told her how much I missed Nigerian food and she said I should do and come back.
For days after hearing the news I was in shock and in deep examination of conscience. It’s good to give people all the love we can while they are still here and not wait till when they are gone. Live life valuing people and making every moment worth it. I learnt a lot of things at that time; I called everyone I hadn’t heard from in a long time just making sure they are doing okay.
When I watched the video Anyi posted on her Facebook about her illness, I just couldn’t help but wonder how she could smile all through the pain and live a happy life.
Anyi was a woman with great potentials, she was a strong woman and She was always contented. Till now I’m still in shock and can’t help but think about her. Anyi my dear, you are deeply missed and I appreciate God for giving us an opportunity to know such a perfect person like you. Star angel, when I look at the stars at night I smile because I know you’re one of them.
As difficult as it is to accept, May her soul through the mercy of God rest in perfect peace. Amen
