‘Midnight diamonds stud my heaven
Southward burning like the jewels that eye your place
And the warm winds that embrace me
Just as surely kissed your face
Yeah these miss you nights they’re the longest’
Sleep well and wake.
The last WhatsApp I got from Don, on the 14th of July last year – he was in the hospital awaiting tests to see if he was good enough to get a new -donor- heart, to save his life. He was still feeling optimistic and The Plurk Card he received made him smile and feel loved.
I still have it in my phone, I sometimes pull up the conversation. I can’t believe it is almost a year since he left us.
Sleep well, Don…sleep well <3
