Vale Of Tears Pulls Down An Iroko Tree- In Memory Of The Legendary Ihesiaba Solomon Ozuah (1932-2018)

I saw death in his eyes
As they shone brightly but pale.
I didn't know it was death
Until it struck without a dent of mercy....
I was left shocked and morose.......
No! It couldn't have happened
But it did.........
Painful it was and still is......
Only tears and pains come from such remembrance.
Now i wish it did not happen!
But i have to live with it now......
It did happen!
Lord, take this pain away.
It discomforts me.......
Let me feel free.......
Free from pain once again.

Though my heart has been slayed by Mr. sorrow,
I'm still glad that you have safely sailed
Over to a better place.
A land where the Sun smiles with the moon
And pampers the soil with an uncountable showers
Of happiness enmeshed in a garment of immortality.

  1. Yes as much as it hurts, I'm glad you have safely sailed to a better place. I gladly await our re-union at the end of time
