Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon

Just yesterday we chatted,

Chatted on WhatsApp,

Just today, I read on Facebook,

Rest on Douglas Maduka.

Just yesterday you made a post

Accentuating fruits of a labor,

Just today, I read on Facebook,

Cheerio Osman Ojonimi Samson!

Astounded and dumbfounded.

No words to say –

Wearied from death’s frequency of nowadays.

I have exhausted my apostrophes,

I have finished my lament songs.

At the feet of His Cross it happened.

So I rest consoled.

Rest on brothers, rest on friends.


* Dedicated to the memories of Samson Osman Ojonimi and Douglas Maduka.

          By the way, its the feast of St. Vincent De Paul today … so happy feast day @vincentdepaul

          1. Yes @josephoguche the feast was, I loved the idea of being named after that dude, but guess I fell from grace (religion for me has deteriorated into an amorphous shape thus I have my own religion)

            1. Jo (@josephoguche)

              Yea religion can deteriorate but the giver of life, Jesus, never changes .. you can ignore religion but please don’t ignore Him. @vincentdepaul

  7. Life is ephemeral…like a vapour…
