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.
