Surprise... Poem by Gladys Ombati


I loved him and him me;
Unexplained it was
Everyone knew it, and I liked it that way
It was exclusive; every passing day.
Save for the surprise…

He opened my eyes to the world
For he taught me;
How to receive the best and the worst;
That to be happy you have to forgive fast
But then, he had a surprise…

This man, he was perfect, in his way.
Matters kindness, his life was an example
Our love grew; days to years,
His strength; Oh, I had no fears.
In love, only not filled in for the surprise…

Things started to change, they always do
Another vector life took; and this man,
He gave in. I still don’t understand
How my warrior gave in. such a painful stunt;
And I, had to conform to the surprise…

“Keep on keeping on;
Life is tough, but you are the best.”
Well, my wish is that this saying
Could only be affirmed before your parting
I’m sad. For death was the paining surprise.

(Lots of love daddy)
