for my little cousin ( restored )
Age Group: Adult
Come now, hear
I have a memory'
not so far back
of a child...
listen to the song and you will see
what hapened to this child
what happened to the family...
Maybe, Seni, you're not the only one
The sun that you can't see,
riseing above the trees
as far as the the mind can reach
To never again, feel that touch
smooth against your hair,
a touch that was never there.
You can't breath in air
or kiss the wind hello
no, seni, no...
Or taste, yummy meat pies,
or have Egusi soup,
sticky, spicy, and hot
my darling, no you may not
fiesty, little, Seni
you're sleeping for to long
wake up and hear this song!
but you won't, because you can't.
(sorry uncle and auntie) ...
maybe Seni, you're not the only one...
Author's Notes: This song/poem is about my four year old cousin who died. She was in a coma for a week before she passed. And all through the service people came up to talk about Seni, though they did a piss poor job of it. They made it all about them and their untimate religion. I hated it and wrote this poem to give some closure to my aunt and uncle.
