Phrase. From Arabic.
“A declaration of love, from one person to another, indicting how difficult it would be to live without them”
This is one of those things that is both morbid and marvellous simultaneously.
The sentiment when saying this to someone is that you love them. That you’re in love with them. Infact, you’re so in love with them that, literally, the phrase means ‘You bury me.’ That’s right; you couldn’t possibly imagine like without this person, so much so that you wish for them to bury you (e.g. you die before they do) so that the pain does not have to be endured.
Imagine, though, how you’d feel if both people say it and one person does pass on. Could that be classed as selfish?!
