2 Years Gone, Tola.

It's never easy to lose anyone...trust me, I know. I've lost some older ones, a few young ones and not too old ones too and they hit you differently no matter how you want to spin it.

I got to know this amazing soul and she was always all smiles and lively...very free-spirited and sweet but I wish I got to know her long before she was snatched by the cold hands of death. It stings...it hurts... I wish I could bring her back and I would, without batting an eyelid. Keep resting, Tola. Your influence is still being felt.

Tola, your light was put out before it could spread
Just as your sun has gone so dim without hope
You were made into a school project that lacked scope
My heart is torn asunder and with pain too, my heart is in tears
I couldn't understand your death, no, not your passage
I don't know why you had to turn so quickly, your page?
Who would have thought that your sun that shined so bright would go down quickly?
Could anyone have imagined that your light would be easily put out?
In my wildest dream, I can't believe that the hug we had was the very last
How it grieved and pained my heart to refer to you as in the past
Very true, things with time change so quickly
Just as you left without a warning, so swiftly
Painful to see that your smile would be gone forever
The world has been deprived of the power it wields
Yearly, from time to time, my heart aches for your mum
She went through so many sleepless nights
Hoped, prayed and stayed up just to join in this fight
To keep you alive but now you left her alone and took the flight
Forever you are gone from us, Tola even from our sight
Never from our thoughts and the memories you left behind
Would forever be remembered and cherished
Continue to sleep on, Tola as you enjoy God's presence

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
