Matthias Pantaleon (August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)
The pebbles of raindrop on her bare skin
Got her excited and she make this childish glee;
Wink at me and started singing some old fairies.
She was the feminine version of me;
Sweet, cheerful with a crown of innocence on her head
Come on little cutie (I called out to her)
Please daddy let me stay a little longer,
As long as you don’t catch cold sweetie
Alright daddy, I wouldn’t get sick on you!
She smiled like the sun rises in her eyes:
And resume her singing like a sparrow.
I went inside to fix her a cup of coffee,
Then this loud sound from the heavenly body got me startled;
I reach for the door; pulled its handle and fast;
Only to see my cherub laying on the ground lifelessly;
She was caught by lighting.
I held her in my bosom and weep like a baby
God must send an angel to bring back my cutie
She was a cherub, such a sweet little thing;
Smiling like the sun rises her eyes!
