Description

On the eve of the 1st anniversary of when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, I mourn the loss of my best friend who lost his short-lived fight to it last month. I made this mix in an attempt to process my shock, my disbelief that years of talking to him every single day have been undone, and came to an indisputable irreversible end, in a matter of a week. He was my rock through thick and thin and I never imagined losing him this soon, at the young age of 36.


But I also made this for all of you out there who lost a dearly beloved, be it to any cause, foreseen or sudden. Much has been written about grief, but contending with it and living in a post-traumatic shock is something no one can prepare you for. Words escape me and I find myself in whirlwind of emotions that come in unpredictable waves. Emotions like anger, denial, sorrow, disbelief and regret. I go about my day feeling numb, aimless and dejected. I’m told time is a healer, but what if I don’t want to be healed? I’m scared of our memories fading into oblivion.


Maybe this mix will be a solace for all of us who grieve. It has the highs and lows, the ebbs and flows, the wave of emotions that come to define our experience living with such insurmountable loss.


And to Chris I whisper:


Goodbye, my friend; your journey has ended.

Your struggles have now begun to cease.

Time to close your eyes to happy dreams

And wake to eternal peace.


Goodbye, my friend; I don’t want to let go.

We’ve been together many years.

It’s hard to see what lies ahead.

It’s blurry through the tears.


Our two souls are forever entwined.

There will always be a hollow spot.

I will miss you until it becomes my time.


Making this mix was a labor of love. If you feel like showing your appreciation, buy me a cup of a coffee (uppmixes.com/donate). You can also share this with your friends, rate it or leave a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you subscribed to this podcast. Thank you.
