Pa and Ma.

By Olawalium | Olawalium | 28 Mar 2021


Another day without your smile, Papa

Another day just passed by, Mama

Life dealt a huge blow with you both, not Karma

I can't call your names both without a stammer

Oh, Papa, you were always a charmer

You loved nature so much, but not much of a farmer

Oh, Mama, I missed watching you stay glued to your drama

How you laughed continuously without a comma

Both of different worlds and you both created magic

The magic in Olawalium that has come to stay

I see myself in both of your worlds

I took a reflection and saw myself in both of you

Firm, playful, calm, a dreamer, strong, smart, intelligent and romantic

You both got snuffed out even before you could see much

See the man we've all become as life pressed sore

When others tried so hard to hit us at our very core

Trying to do things better than you did

While still reminding ourselves that we got each other

Your voices echo thunder in my head still

Thinking of what you would say or do when I hit a crossroad

Your passing away made a man out of me

I see things with clarity now and with intensity

Understanding these are the things you also went through

While still doing adulthood with raising us all

Holding it all together so we wouldn't fall

If only I could for a moment place a call

To appreciate you both even more for all you dealt with -

Growing up, life, betrayals, pressure, raising us all...

But you both gave me the greatest gift which is finding God early

No wonder you both left since you know I am in safe hands
