Rookie (1982 june 5th / bomet, kenya)

Bereaved


This pain, this day, we've paid

With our tears, we bear in grieve

The loss of our son,

We so much loved.

In kind, we home

Our sorrows with tears

They flow, for our son, so much beloved.



This soil, of this earth,

Shall take our tears

This soil, of this earth, shall too have our hero

And this air, this air we breathe

Bringing life and laughter

Into the grave, it took our hero.



Rip Kones(i wrote the poem at the passing of a famous kenyan politician who was my mp at the time of passing)
