To A Friend
CALM though unseen the presumptions of your being,
Gentle the soft speeches of your vocals-
The heart of your manliness.
HUMBLY swaying on the corridors of passion,
Unshaken by the waves of emotion-
The stance of your comeliness.
Crowned with knowledgeable diadems-
The wave of your IQ-logical boldness
KINDLY swift on the corridors of peace,
Never hunting the unprecedented-
The mark of your smartness.
EVER ready to hearken,
With ears feathered into the air-
The sound of your fairness.
ASPIRING higher always
And in the boat, 'em you sail
Who your hand holds.
DEDICATED to service
Devotion to the Lord-
You stand so bold.
INSPIRING a million,
You lighten their load.
You blaze every freezing cold.
LO to you, a dedication,
Chanting hums of praises-
While your tale to the world told.
EVER forever friends-
And together forever in memory written-
Never to path the pals road.
[Dedicated to a FRIEND OF FRIEND. Though have not met, pals forever we be and upon the walls of memory your stars written indellible. CHIKE ADIELE (BAR.) ]
