Goodbye, Aubrey, Goodbye

Aubrey, I bless the day faces and aces of our life courses crossed To cement the mettle and fettle grown to own relationships with colleagues As each day, each way, each stay a laughter, a meal, a deal, a joke you tossed Until mercy memories on the campus, on a bus, on a field lived on like flavoured figs. Aubrey, I detest the day death from our midst drove you away To snatch, to catch, to hatch your pristine personality from Earthly essence As each day colleagues tenderness tears rendered for solace to sacrifice a weepy way Until merry memories married silence and salience that sailed on like an elevated experience. Aubrey, I mourn the day you departed with no goodbye to share To console, to condole, to convince and to comfort the living As each colleague consumed uncomfortable care in despair Until mournful memories mesmerized minds of the gregarious grieving. Aubrey, I pray God welcomed you in your new home in Heaven To groom your soul, to bloom a never-ending life, to boom your eternity As each colleague in vain looked for answers for the living at seven Until meditation memories in retrospect reminisced, calling for temerity and unity.
