Happy Birthday Solveig!

There is not a single day, or moment that goes by where Solveig isn’t remembered in our hearts, in our thoughts, in our memories and in all the love that she has given us that endures eternally.

We miss you so much, and are so grateful that we were chosen to be your family – all those that knew Solveig throughout our 26 years together, know what her family meant to her…and we honor that now, by loving each other and staying by each other’s side through thick and thin.

Dear God, please grant peace eternally to, Solveig Zarah Keshavjee, who is under your care and your grace, that her soul may rest and shine above us, and that she always is proud of us. Dear God please grant peace to all those left behind, allow smiles and happiness to enter our hearts, now and always.

My beautiful Solveig, I shall hold you in my heart until I can hold you in heaven, happy birthday.

Two years…missing you beautiful Solveig Zarah Keshavjee

Two years ago, my beautiful wife Solveig Zarah Keshavjee became an angel. We miss her, think of her and love her everyday. I see her strength and love in my children and I see how many she touched with her kindness and compassion…I feel sad for those that missed out as you can never go back…never.

Solveig is honoured now by us living our lives to the fullest and continuing to live everyday with love.
We miss you and love you, we smile, we still learn from you, and are filled with gratitude always as we remember you… beautiful wife and mother, loved by all, voice of an angel, forever in our hearts. I love you eternally, Azim

“I’ll See You In My Dreams”

For you my angel Solveig…this song says everything…you would have loved this album…I pray every day you are at peace and at rest…I love you….we’ll meet and live and laugh again, for death is not the end…

“I’ll See You In My Dreams”

The road is long
And seeming without end
The days go on, I remember you, my friend
And though you’re gone and my heart’s been emptied, it seems
I’ll see you in my dreams

I got your guitar
Here by the bed
All your favorite records and all the books that you’ve read
And though my soul feels like it’s been split at the seams
I’ll see you in my dreams

I’ll see you in my dreams
When all our summers have come to an end
I’ll see you in my dreams
We’ll meet and live and laugh again
I’ll see you in my dreams
Yeah, up around the river bend
For death is not the end
And I’ll see you in my dreams

I’ll see you in my dreams
When all our summers have come to an end
I’ll see you in my dreams
We’ll meet and live and laugh again
I’ll see you in my dreams
Yeah, up around the river bend
For death is not the end
And I’ll see you in my dream
See you in my, see you in my dreams

And I’ll see you in my dreams

We kept our tradition this year as well, as you taught us….and made a plate for you in loving memory.

Drive All Night

…for you…

“Drive All Night”

When I lost you honey sometimes I think I lost my guts too
And I wish God would send me a word send me something I’m afraid to lose
Lying in the heat of the night like prisoners all our lives
I get shivers down my spine and all I wanna do is hold you tight

I swear I’ll drive all night just to buy you some shoes
And to taste your tender charms
And I just wanna sleep tonight again in your arms

Tonight there’s fallen angels and they’re waiting for us down in the street
Tonight there’s calling strangers, hear them crying in defeat.
Let them go, let them go, let them go do their dances of the dead (let ’em go right ahead)
You just dry your eyes girl, and c’mon c’mon c’mon let’s go to bed, baby, baby, baby

I swear I’ll drive all night just to buy you some shoes
And to taste your tender charms
And I just wanna sleep tonight again in your arms

There’s machines and there’s fire waiting on the edge of town
They’re out there for hire but baby they can’t hurt us now
Cause you’ve got, you’ve got, you’ve got, you’ve got my love, you’ve got my love
Through the wind, through the rain, the snow, the wind, the rain
You’ve got, you’ve got my, my love heart and soul

Happy Anniversary Solveig

As time passes and the days turn to weeks, then turn to months and now almost 2 years have gone by…doesn’t change my love, my memories and my gratitude for every moment I spent with my beautiful Solveig. Though I have found a way to move forward and feel happiness in my memories, doesn’t lessen the loss I feel, the loss our girls feel at losing their mother…we miss Solveig everyday…everyday, and even though we are able feel happiness again and the pain doesn’t sting like a razor cut, we still feel it…we’ll always feel it, but we can now live in the way that Solveig would be proud of.

On this day I remember, as I do every day, our wedding and the start of our life together – I didn’t think it would get cut short after 26 years and I wish we could have had more time together, but for the time we did have, Solveig and I LIVED it FULLY and HAPPILY and steadfast in our Ismaili faith and with the love we have for God – I could not imagine it any other way. Solveig has left such a legacy and I am still learning from her…how to be an even better man, a better father, a better friend, and to continue her love of life, passion and kindness to others.

As life moves forward, not on, but forward, I can smile and laugh again and forge different paths. Life must continue, and new horizons await…yet I know that the whisper I hear in the trees, in my heart and in my soul, that sign, I know is her…it will always be her, guiding, and shining above.

I miss you every day my angel Solveig and I love you with all my heart and soul, that love is special and holds a place only for you. One day, I’ll hear your voice beside me, and you’ll take me home.

Happy anniversary to my beautiful Solveig.

Solveig Zarah Keshavjee and Azim Keshavjee
A kiss that began a journey and will continue through eternity.

“Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)”

Solveig Z. Keshavjee (1963 - 2019)
In loving memory of Solveig Z. Keshavjee, 1963 – 2019 (Solveig Zarah Keshavjee)

Goodnight, my angel
Time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you’ve been asking me
I think you know what I’ve been trying to say
I promised I would never leave you
And you should always know
Wherever you may go
No matter where you are
I never will be far away

Goodnight, my angel
Now it’s time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay
And like a boat out on the ocean
I’m rocking you to sleep
The water’s dark
And deep inside this ancient heart
You’ll always be a part of me

Goodnight, my angel
Now it’s time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry
And if you sing this lullabye
Then in your heart
There will always be a part of me

Someday we’ll all be gone
But lullabyes go on and on…
They never die
That’s how you
And I
Will be

(Words: Billy Joel)

Dear God, we thank you for Solveig Zarah Keshavjee…
