Tribute | a poem by Adedayo Ademokoya

A long day and a long night
The result of a heart engraved in darkness
Refusing to acknowledge
The flowers fade and the mighty trees fall
He believed it was a dream
And wants to face reality
But alas! This is reality
The eyelids closed in death
The body turned cold and frozen
At this moment his mind was at a standstill
Turbulent tranquility filled his soul
Joy was taken away
Life seem meaningless
“What has life come to?” he asked
Live today die the next
Only God knows the best
He hoped his soul would soon heal
But he had lost someone special.

(Tribute to my late Dad)
