Goodnight My Beloved Grandma

Goodnight My Beloved Grandma (for Elizabeth Ugoeze Nwadinobi) By Izunna Okafor As an ocean bleeds unbounded Troubling the sons it founded In pathing the ways with tracks Tears have bathed my wang with marks What a world ! The wave blew aloud like a ruse Kidnapping attentions as a tale Only to jail some minds in her rue Blinking as sorrow in the eyes of men What a world !! We never expected an untimely departure But that has reposed our own to her home For the time of men is tied to the nature And our tears for the dead a show of sorrow Death has seized the noble hen And the chicks abandoned in the dusky earth We cry not because we need a sympathetic help But to cough sorrow off our heavy heart Death is wicked And the world a tricketh But we'll forever remember you as a mother Farewell and goodbye our dear grandmother Good night ! Good night !! Good night !!! (Your Grandson) © Izunna Okafor 2018
