Goodbye, Akeem


 A tribute to Akeem “Keemo” Adams which is entitled “Goodbye”:








Such immense pride



You brought to this space



Which is now darkened 



By your ascension 



To the great beyond



Oh how I wish 



To turn back time



So that to our yesterday



We could return



If only for a moment



To see your smile



Cherish your innocence



Revel in your humility



In my powerless state



Reminiscence must suffice



While I cling to fading hope



That this is not the end



For we had only just begun



Our journey together



Yesterday was ours



So ripe with promise



Today that promise



Is sadly out of reach



Tomorrow will find me



In such a sad place



For I must now say to you 



That most painful word



Goodbye.
