Let Me Go With Him
(1965 / Abor, Volta Region, Ghana)

Let Me Go With Him

I have walked through
the thick and thin of life’s experiences
and I’ve seen the Gates of Heaven opening
my feeble eyes have peeped past
the Gates into its allays
I saw Grandma and Grandpa walking
through its flowery gardens
I’ve seen Ahevor dancing to agbekor rhythms
arms stretched, I embraced my cousins and nieces
if this is where Death takes me to
let me welcome him now
let him take me away
from the magnificent shroud of black nights
let me fly with him in triumph
into the bosom of He who brought me
onto this opened road of nothingness
