I shall tell you all about it


I need closure
please I need closure
Just the other day
We were talking about my recovery
Now them be talking about legacy?
Please wake me up and tell me this is a bad dream
Please cream this dream and kill this real.

Now Muyo is crying
No, please tell me someone, everyone is lying
Tell me this is some prank show.

I can’t cry
I don’t know how to tear up or tear out this pain
I wish I could talk to you once again
Just once again.
I can tell you about the pretty blonde I met yesterday
She had bright green eyes
We had a brief but sweet conversation
If that would bore you
Let’s talk about Arsenal’s latest loss
Or that Real Madrid’s awful end to their season
Anything… even politics APC, ANC, the Conservative party.

I wanna ask God why and be mad at Him
But you taught me well
And I know better than to subpoena the One who holds the universe
To my earthly court.

I’m sitting here with all these messages
Telling me the baton has been passed to me
And I better start running
How do I run
Where to
How fast?

And Momma is strong
Your baby is chilled, completely surrendered to His will
King is hopeful
Omowumite and I were reminiscing on the beautiful times
She’s holding up well
I wish I could tell you in person
Tell you all about it.

I’m certain you’re in Heaven right now
Speaking to those saints that were inspired
To put to page your favorite verses
You in dialogue with those who composed your favorite hymns
I’m sure you’ve already learnt a new song
Playing beautiful, unimaginable notes
On your grand piano made out of gold in your heavenly mansion
Singing with the twenty four elders
I can only imagine.

I can imagine you having revelational conversations
Like the resurrection and now you have the fuller picture
I see you talking to the great Apostle Paul
You throwing your head back in laughter
I always knew that man had pockets full of jokes.

So let me leave you to those heavenly conversations
Whatever is happening here, we shall tell you all about it
When we see again.

I love you Dad, you’re a true legend.

  1. Dad has joined the great cloud of witnesses in heaven, Sir. Just as he successfully finished the race, he’s cheering us on to run with patience the race set before us. We take courage in this, comforted by the Holy Spirit.
    We’ll all be re-united someday- this we know. And we rejoice because we’re confident of this hope.
    It is well.

  2. Well written! And remember as Paul said, we who have the knowledge of the resurrection and eternal life do not mourn like others. We mourn their absence, yet we are not without hope.
    We are comforted and aware that those already in the rooms prepared for them by Christ have finished their work and eagerly await our arrival. Cheering us on in love that we should continue to pursue God’s promises and not lose faith as we continue to run on our track.
