I’m KanxeY, an art lover, animation and illustration enthusiast from Nepal, living in Israel now. I also love to read & write Nepali literature . I work to find little moments of love and translate them into shapes & shades.

SABBA, Its a grandfather in hebrew. He was an guardian Angel. He was a part of me on the journey of his last days .

In the quiet corridors of Sarei Zedek Hospital in Israel, I found myself bidding farewell to a soul whose kindness had woven itself into the fabric of my life. SABBA, The elderly gentleman I had cared for, a beacon of goodness and generosity, had embarked on his final journey.

As I stood by Sabba’s bedside, the sterile scent of the hospital mingling with the weight of imminent loss, memories flooded my mind like a bittersweet symphony. His eyes, once vibrant with life’s reflections, now closed in peaceful repose, signaling the end of an era.

Each day spent in his company was a lesson in compassion and resilience. His laughter, a melody that echoed through the mundane routines of caregiving, became a cherished soundtrack to the hours we shared. Yet, the inevitability of our final parting cast a shadow on those precious moments.

The hospital room, a silent witness to countless stories of hope and healing, now bore witness to the poignant farewell of a gentle soul. The harsh reality of mortality hung in the air, overshadowing the resilience that had defined his character.

As the final moments approached, a kaleidoscope of emotions swirled within me – gratitude for the privilege of being part of his journey, sorrow at the impending void, and a profound understanding that life’s tapestry is woven with threads of both joy and sorrow.

Saying goodbye was a testament to the profound impact he had on my life. The room seemed to echo with the unspoken words of shared experiences, a silent dialogue that transcended the limitations of spoken language. In that sacred moment, the veil between this world and the next felt thin, as if he were already embarking on a celestial voyage.

The journey of heaven awaited him, and as I stepped away from the hospital, I carried the weight of the inevitable separation. Yet, I also carried the indelible mark of his goodness, a legacy that would forever shape the way I approached life’s challenges.

In the corridors of Sarei Zedek Hospital, amidst the echoes of farewells and the whispers of healing, I said goodbye to a guardian angel who had graced my world. The lessons of love, kindness, and resilience he imparted would continue to illuminate my path, a luminous legacy left behind by a man whose spirit had taken flight into the boundless expanse of eternity.
