When I was around 10 my grandfather died of breast cancer, but I remember that for months before, I could sense that something was wrong with my grandfather, when ever I would go to his house. I remember asking the same question, "Papa, are you going to die?" just like that. My grandfather would reply, "Boubie, I am a spry chicken! I have years left to live!" And every time I felt like he was lying. But he wasn't lying, he didn't know he was dying.
We found out 1 month before he died that he had breast cancer, but by then it was too late for chemotherapy. My grandfather came to me about two weeks before he died and asked me, "Boubie, how did you know I was going to die?" and I told my grandfather, "Papa every time I touch you I see you in a coffin."
My grandfather smiled and he told me, "Boubie you have the sight, just like I did. Be careful how you use this power. Boubie, sometimes having this power will feel like a curse, but know you have it for a good reason." My Grandfather told me a lot of things that night about our family, but he said one thing, that even until this day I don't understand. He said, rather cryptically I might add, "Never let the darkness that you see, overcome the light that you are." If anyone can understand what he meant please tell me!
