No Tears.

A thousand words still can't break through this heavy heart
Eyes filled with tears yet, never enough to bring you back to earth
I am always grieved when men of real talent die
Because the world needs them more than earth does
Ease after war, port after stormy seas, sleep after toil, life after death, does greatly please
I know you voted to die because death doesn't surprise wise men
They are always ready to leave and what a sight you must have seen
No more tears, you didn't die, you simply changed location
It's not about what we desire in this situation
I am just pleased to have known you for this duration
You didn't die, you simply live forever in our hearts
No tears, it hits hard, still, no tears
What a man you are, Baba Ijo... Still, no tears
I remember your smile, laughter and even your jokes
Full of energy and you warm your heart to all folks
Strength more than that of a horse and a life filled with service
You lived for others; your family, service and lost souls
Always willing to help and here you are, couldn't be helped from death
Your kind is rare and my thoughts are with your family at large
You lived life and there were no last words from you
Last words are for those who never said enough while being alive
You lived life in full and what a privilege it is to have known you
Sleep on, rest on, the world would miss all you were about, I do.

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.
