An Ode to Her Memory

“If you go away on a summer’s day
You might as well take the sun away”
Words I recount as I sit at bay
Wondering, how her memory still fills this day

It was just yesterday that we swung and swayed
Now 3 years past, since you went back to Clay.
How life and death cheated us without play
Now you have left us on a journey Far-Away

I still hold you dear my sweet sister
My heart you shall never leave, like a mere visitor
Even though it races faster and faster…
The hour glass will surely bring us back together.

We really miss you my Dear One
Even though we know you are with the Great One.
Sleep well oh Beautiful One
For soon, we shall all meet as One.

Dedicated To Akua Adoma Ofori… 3 years ago today, you were taken from us but 3 years after you still remain with us and forever more in our hearts and minds! I love you Adoma! Rest in peace my sweet sister!

  1. Although I didn’t meet her I’m sure she’s wonderful, loving and supportive.. May her soul rest in the bossom of the Lord

  2. Sorry once again Kwame…I wrote this for you three years ago when it happened. I’m not sure if i ever sent it to you.
    Let Your Light break forth
    and illuminate this dark hour
    And in the stillness of that calm
    that only You can create,
    Restore his soul
    And speak to him those soft still words,
    “Fear not”.
