My Friend Is Gone - Poem by Babatunde Aremu
Delivered by two mothers
Ordained to be siaseme twins
Co-joined perchance at nymphs
Cleaving together like the unbroken cords
We climbed moutains together
Taking giant steps to greatness.
We paddled the same canoe
Through the murky waters.
Our dreams were the same,
Our aspirations were inseparable.
Consistently we washed each others back.
What a great companion.
Why do you suddenly eclipsed?
Why embarking on a journey of no return?
Why translating into the celestial
When there are more to be done here?
Why did you depart unannounced?
In order to dine with with the cherubims?
Why not wishing me bye?
You were my great companion
A worthy friend indeed.
Adieu, my worthy friend.
(IN MEMORY OF SAMUEL ADEBANJI OJO ALADESUYI)
