Very sad and flabbergasted,
With your untimely demise,
No last whisper, smile nor groan,
Such an inexplicable death,
God knows, but why you?

It's turned me myopic,
Seeing mirages everywhere,
When I think of you,
My everything-my hopes,
God knows, but why you?

Coherently you were my hopes,
The last penalty kick of the family,
The last goal of the family,qq
That death has roped me,
God knows, but why you

Tangibly you were loving,
A son, grandson so loving,
A brother, cousin so loving,
An uncle, friend so loving,
God knows, but why yoqqqu?

Ordeal it's turned,
As it dawns and sets without you,
Our faces wan with sorrowful mien,Waq
Without consolation my friend,
God knows, but why you?

Raven of the family,
I pray for you sunshine,
May the angels receive you,
may the Lord guard and guide us,
To the last triumphant trumpet, Amen.

By Kiyondi Ronald
