DEAR DEPARTED…POEM ADAPTED BY KAYODE ODUMOSU

DEAR DEPARTED

No further away than a picture
A smile, or remembered phrase
Our Loved Ones
Live in memory

So close in many ways
For how often does a story
Bring nostalgic thoughts to mind
Of moments we once shared

Of days now left behind
How often have our dreams
Brought golden recollections
Of happy days gone by

Our memory has a magic way
Of keeping loved ones near
Ever close in mind and heart
Are the ones we hold most dear.

So sleep on, loved ones, sleep on
Wait yonder across the bridge till ‘morrow
When our joys and sorrows of parting
Shall be  dreams of yesterday…ADAPTED (2005)
