Rest In Peace Lad - Poem by Pius Didier

Rest in peace Nick, my heart is full of ease
You taught me how to wait and wait, then sit and wait the whole day
With my head and toes tight, to sit and wait for my day
For I'm a rope long and wide, with a big empty knot on it
Whence cometh from my Nick, your days were loud and visible
I'll slow and bow by the verge, to watch and catch the moon divide
Who will wash my cheeks dry, fare thee well brother.

Rest in peace Nick, with this tale of Tina Turner
Was is not for His tick, I'd tussle hot to hold you within
When alone remember, last season that just ended
You told me to impale deep, for the roots of life are deep
Now that you're gone I weep, loud and loud to awake your soul
If at all you'd bye'd your twin, my Nick my Nick my Nick
I would've had an idea my dear, of how eerie is your world

Rest in peace my Nick, for the sun is no more hot
And the stars are bright, bright also is path you led
By this side of bed you slept, I'll rest my thumb then blend
With those tides and waves, everyday shall be a lonely day
With those hymns and columns, every night shall be a dark night
With those words and words, every moment shall be a crash moment
Remember to send back a sign, fare thee well my Nick.

Rest in peace my Nick, with that breeze indeed
Rest assured we'll meet, to replant a levee again lad
Even as I drape you over and over, it's unfortunate you went dumb
If God is really for us, who can be against us Nick?
That good taketh the good Lord, and with Him keeps a sight
Once you arrive rest for a while, then update the dreaded diary
Whence cometh from lad, rest in peace my Nick
