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
Thank you for your time.
My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.
My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
