TRIBUTE TO CHADWICK BOSEMAN
I found Letitia Wright’s so very heartfelt and touching tribute to Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa‘s sister – Shuri) a few days ago in her Instagram account. Today I found it on YouTube and would like to share it here.
Her tribute comes from a deep part of her being. It’s fitting for a King.
Like us, she’s feeling this loss … more intense than us because of their bond (I’m sure).
Take a minute to listen!
On Tuesday, September 1, Wright posted a nearly six-minute video to Instagram which she dedicated to “my brother,” as they played siblings in the Marvel superhero film.
Along with beautiful nature images and soft music, she shared a powerful spoken word poem in which she reflected on the death of her friend, from colon cancer on Friday, saying, “
I wish I got to say goodbye.”
“It is written, there is nothing new under the sun. But the sun stood still that morning, refusing to shine,” Wright said as the video began.
“Dark clouds surrounding, confusion setting in,” she continued. “Tears flowing, rivers so deep. I didn’t know this is what I was waking up to – my brother, an angel on earth, departed. A soul so beautiful, when you walked into a room, there was calm. You always moved with grace and ease. Every time I saw you, the world would be a better place.”
Wright said, “Words can’t describe how I feel – how we all feel – that losing you was forced upon us, to accept this as a new reality. I wish I got to say goodbye.”
“I thought we had more time, and many more years to come,” she said. “I thought this would be forever. This hurts.”
“It is written, there is nothing new under the sun.
But the sun stood still that morning, refusing to shine.
Dark clouds surrounding, confusion setting in.
Tears flowing, rivers so deep.
I didn’t know this is what I was waking up to, my brother, an angel on earth, departed.
A soul so beautiful, when you walked into a room there was calm.
You always moved with grace and ease.
Every time I saw you, the world would be a better place.
Words can’t describe how I feel.
How we all feel, that losing you was forced upon us, to accept this as a new reality.
I wish I got to say goodbye.
I messaged you a couple times, but I thought you were just busy.
I didn’t know you were dealing with so much.
But against all the odds, you remained focused on fulfilling your purpose with the time handed to you.
And I’ll never forget the day that I met you.
Before I got on the plane to L.A. for my first meeting with you, God told me that you are my brother and that I am to love you as such.
And I always did, and I always will.
But now, my heart is broken, searching for old message of exchange, cards filled with your handwriting and memories of you holding my hand as if it was for eternity.”
I thought we had more time, and many more years to come, for more laughter and for more moments of me picking on you on set.
Leaning my head on your shoulders in the throne room as Ryan gave us notes.
I thought this would be forever.
I’m trusting God to heal all wounds.
It is also written that all things are made new.
There is light in the darkness.
Streams of living water flow, giving new life.
And all that’s left now is for us to allow all the seeds that you have planted on the earth to grow, to blossom, to become even more beautiful.
You’re forever in my heart.
