Happy Post-Humous Birthday, Dad.

By Olawalium | Olawalium | 15 Nov 2021


Oh, sweet dad, I just wish to see your face
With your well shaved face, I want my fingers to trace
You give one of the best smiles
It's obvious to everyone even from a thousand miles
Now, your old room is full of dust even with the tiles
Here I come, with my sword, hoping to save you from reptiles
I wish that was the situation, I would gladly wield my sword
But right now, I am restricted to memories and words
I wish I could have a sit down with you right now
And discuss with you how every word of yours came to pass
With so many green snakes of humans underneath the grass
Oh, what a wise man you were, dad
I believe even when you were nothing but a lad
Apples doesn't fall too far from it's tree, they say
You shared your wealth of experience so I wouldn't always have to pay
I wish to hear the sound of your horn at the gate
And then have you leave the big chunk of meat for me on the plate
And then have you correct me in love, without hate
Oh, I love to take permission to also go on a date
I missed those times I rushed home from the field to avoid getting home late
A trait that has been imbibed in me and I don't like staying out late
Do you remember how I used to use up your credit and you knew it was me?
Give you the list of things I needed and watch you cross some out hahaha
I miss you and it hurts not having you close by, dad
It's funny but my signature was curled from yours
Happy post humous birthday to you dad
Today is all about you and I don't care how many times I talk about you
I loved you then, I love you now, and always will - never changing

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
