My Father - Poem by Dare Onadele
Gone so afar
Nowhere not around
Far afield he’s not found
Whose got words from his side
He opens his eyes
When I close mine
Clearly attentive are his ears
When I hear no sounds
Sleep once took me to some miles
Welcome he said as he pats
He kissed and gave me enchants
Feel comfortable he said in his arms
Weary after I traversed his gates
Gone so soon to the foreign terrain
I request what he keeps as discern
From here and where I maintain
His fore-fathers called
Their tempo soaring more and more
Who is disturbing my trance?
Fading the vision I had by chance.
Shortening what’s offered just in distance.
Not knowing it was my mummy
Calling at me and joyfully saying
It’s early morning, Dare, darling!
Gazing straight into her eyes
Couldn’t hold what’s in my heart.
