Three years after the death of pop singer, Oluwabimpe Susan Harvey, popularly known by her stage name, Goldie, Denrele Edun has visited her grave. The TV personality, who was known to be the deceased’s best friend also wrote a tribute to her. It read:
“GOLDIE: Closed eyes, heart not beating but a Living Love!
I promise to carry on with our contagious smiles,
The same one that would light up a room the minute you walked in.
I promise to laugh and continue to never take myself too seriously,
I promise to love harder and forgive faster.
I promise to be content, in every sense of the word.
To be thankful for the air in my lungs,
and the EIGHT years I was blessed to know and understand you, OLUWABIMPE SUSAN GOLDIE HARVEY.
I promise to try and have a bigger heart (larger than the one I already have) as you always told me to.
To be selfless.
To know what I have, and know what I can give to others who are not as fortunate.
I promise to grieve that absence of your physical being for only a moment.
And then I promise to set you free.
I promise to never give up on others but when I get to breaking point, Kick their asses to d kerb as u always told me to!
I promise to be a friend and a confidante as you were.
To be a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on or a set of ears to simply listen…
And I can promise you this…
I have always promised to open my heart to you when I fall in love and when I fall apart.
When I eventually get married and become a father (U always said I was excellent with Kids and I would spoil mine rotten).
I promise to let you hear every giggle and feel every hug.
To know every new heartache (Yes o, still the hopeless romantic that I am with recent heartbreaking stories that you would have loved to hear!).
and let you be there for every triumphant moment…
The most important promise I can make,
despite all my excesses and Gemini madness,
A promise that carries the equivalence of all the rest combined is this…
I promise to make you proud….Heck yeah, World Domination is still our portion (I’m still working on everything we spoke about, pushing harder than ever, never relenting…)
With all that I am,
I love you everyday and now I will miss you everyday.
