SUNSET AT DAWN (IN MEMORY OF ABDULGAFAR JNR [DADDY])
I was helpless, like a new baby, born into this world
Clouded with sadness, like darkness at night
My eyes sore, filled with tears and face distorted
I watched you in that white muslin and my heart trembled with fear
Of all the dreams we shared together, yours is now at rest forever
I suffered in the hands of grief
And a continues whips of pain flow all over me, till the day of interment
As you left without saying goodbye
A new atmosphere of sadness evolved around me, I was tormented
My heart and body heavy like a loaded truck,
I accompany you, to your final resting place
My heart stripped of its happiness at that moment
As you take your place beneath the soil
Your passing away is indeed an awful tragedy
Ever since your departure to the afterlife
I live my life on questions
Why, Why, Why? Always
Oh brother, my friend, my confidence
Do you have to leave this early?
What kind of a journey is this?
Will you ever accomplish your dreams in the afterlife?
Will I ever see you again?
Perhaps yes, perhaps not
Oh my brother, my friend, my confidence
Your fall is indeed death
An early death, a sunset at dawn
