As the clock ticked by
So life slipped out of her,
She breathed her last breath
Lo, she became lifeless on my laps.
Ceaseless tear drops!
They flowed like a gentle river
Robust cheeks of mine became wet
Hands shook and body became weak
Screams enveloped the air because my mama left me.
It’s been two years I lost you
Two years of pain and misery
Two years of being tagged ‘motherless’
Two years of being a ‘proper’ orphan.
How I long for you
How I missed those nights of laughter
How I missed those lovely meals
Do you know two of the puppies died after you left?
I’m sure you watched Roda’s wedding from heaven.
Is Papa there with you?
Does he know I’ve missed him?
How do you guys feel leaving me an orphan?
Would Papa have preferred you with me or with him?
Does God know the pains I’m going through?
But I’m consoled with an assurance
The assurance of eternity
That Dad, you and I, shall meet someday
At the bosom of our Lord
To depart no more.
“Since your eyes closed in sleep,
Mine have not ceased to weep”
Love you fiercely!
