We Share Your Tears (For Aka Logan)

Poem By Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

as the sun goes down on your anger
you seem to forget painfully
another day is coming to an end
and no amount of viciousness will do you good
so, with your family and close friends
I share a tear at the loss of your loved one

I will always wish you the peace and assurance
I know your springtime years were sweet,
and you dream of a bright summertime,
since she brought you golden, harvest years,
and so should autumn splendor shine

but you messed your old age time up royally
beyond everyone’s understanding
and we pray you are comforted during this
time of grief with our tears

we know from childhood that
it is only once in a while a friend is found,
who becomes a best friend after some time
and it is once in a while a friendship is made,
a friendship that really warms the heart...
but you have messed up yours royally
and we pray you are comforted during this
time of grief with our tears

Little Daisy

grow my sweet daisy
plant your roots within these veins
flourishing more so than
the grass that tickles your stem

On My 40th Birthday

last night
before I lay down to sleep
I prayed the Lord my shape to keep
to let no wrinkles come.

Can’t Promise Anything

I can't promise you roses
which bloom of brilliant red
but I promise, when you need me
as much as possible


we are the dog who caught the game
but are made to take comfort in the bones
beneath the master’s table

Cherished Friend

God knows there would be times
we'd need a word of cheer
want the face of smile
to brush away our tears
