How I Remembered Keith On What Would Have Been His 19th Birthday

Saturday, 17 August 2019

Keith would have been 19 today. And whilst things have changed since his birthday last year, nothing has changed in the way I honour him on his special day. This is the least thing I can do for the boy who changed my life forever. As heartbroken as I am to this day, I know that he is now in a much better place; and he deserves to be celebrated for being the wonderful child that he was.

This morning when I woke up, I went to his corner in the house and lit a candle. I gave his favourite toy Meow a kiss and then played his favourite song "Lighters". I have been doing this morning routine twice a year for 7 years now, and I will not get tired of doing it for my very special boy. 

Then I went out for a run, listening to a whole playlist of his favourite songs. It was indeed a K Lighter Day.

Wearing my white and blue top (Keith's favourite colours), I went to give blood for the 8th time in Keith's memory. As I mentioned before, Keith had haemorrhage and there was no blood readily available during that time. This is my way of giving back so that other people, especially children have easy access to blood should they need it.

After giving blood, I went to the church to lit a candle, and said a little prayer.

Hayyy, how time flies and how things change.

And although some things have been broken since he left us, our mutual love for this amazing angel remains whole.

I miss him everyday.
