Why Death Hurts

Death and birth are twins, it is beyond our control, it will happen at the right time whether we like it or not.

Death and birth are twins, it is beyond our control, it will happen at the right time whether we like it or not.

Yesterday the family delivered my sister in laws remains in her final resting place. Part of the interment is a short program wherein the immediate families/ members say their final words, goodbyes and thanks to the people who supported them the whole process of mourn and wake nights. The host caught my attention; she is not a family member but an employee of that certain private cemetery. I cannot imagine myself working in such kind of job. I

saw the host wipe her tears as she announces the final viewing. Soon as she announced and ask the family members to close the casket, and my sister in laws children cries, the host also cried and turn her back wiping her tears.


Imagine how many funeral she hosted for a day as I saw


from a distant that there would be an interment to follow soon. How she carries all the sorrow each time she hears people cry. Goodness, my tears did not even dry up since we headed to the cemetery until the final part of the burial.
Why do people cry when we hear the word goodbye? I also wonder why and I hate to say the word either. Why tears are sure to fall when we know we did it all once we lost someone we love. Death will come to us in the right time, it only happens that someone go first before us and left us broken and hurt in.

This is life, we came to this world crying and everyone rejoicing, we left this life with happy memories and everyone around is crying.
