Adieu Abeke !!!
You swept into my life like a wave,
Crashing in with all your grace,
Some people are like puzzles or a maze,
But you were just one simple open page.
You put others first, even when you wept,
You smiled through the tears, even on your deathbed,
Twas a rare gem that you were, on this planet earth,
One as selfless as you were, my dear Abeke.
Oh! Abeke, I can’t weep now, I really have to cope,
But the tears roll still, almost causing me to choke,
I’m glad you are rid of the pain, I truly am,
But I can’t help but wonder, just where you really are.
I remember the laughter, the joy and the tears,
All the feelings rolled together that we sometimes shared,
I think of the pain, the dread and the fear,
All these and more that you alone tried to bear.
Then I wipe my tears and decide that it’s best,
This rest you have found, after passing through the tests,
With the lord is your nest, my dear Abeke,
