LIKE A BROKEN POT

Written by: Reuben Enahoro

Forget not, the time long before now
The chats laughs and so much more
What it came with, of course, not pain
Shall we let now, the memories fade away
And the beauty of all those time, vanish
Leaving only pieces like a broken pot?

Do not forget how much water it had held
Nor the quantity it fetched to quench our thirsts
When all we needed in life depended on it
Let’s not push it aside for any reason
Nor leave it just outside in the heat
But mend the cracks, while we still can
