Farewell – FAKOYA SALAMOT

From the scratch,

We never knew

How time flew

Being together

Is like forever

But never mind,

We would live

For we believe

You aim for the better

And strive for the greater

As mild as the sea

As solicitous as a mother

As hardworking as a farmer

That sows and reaps purely

And rights the wrong

Like the melody of a song

He teaches and preaches

To hinder ignorance

And carves up skill

To pine doubt

He never ceased to surprise us

But time soars swiftly

Rolling hastily

Without shame

I now remember

That, friends cannot stay together

For moons

We would glance around

For you

And if you depart

From our fastened belt

And we would shed sad joy

For the coach we discern

May abscond

You may leave

For all we know

Is that,

Our tutor

Our preacher,

Our exactor,

The farmer who cultivates

The good

And rights the wrong

Is departing so soon

We wish we knew

How time flew like a soaring eagle

This teacher,

This educator,

This exactor,

This farmer,

This tutor

And this affable chum,

Is no less than him,

Mr.Bolaji
