BY THIS TIME LAST YEAR (In remembrance of Ameh Prince Jerry)
How did I get here? Who brought me here? Angels? Men, God or the gods? Wait, where am I? Now, I mean right now
By this time last year Yes, February 6, 2015 The date I’ve christened a ‘day of demons’ I embarked on a solitary journey A journey to an unknown wilderness I mean, the great wilderness men call life Alone, all alone
One year ago I opened a new chapter of the book of life The chapter was called ‘REALITY’ I was face to face with reality ‘The father of the house is no more The rafia fence shall surely crumble’
By this time last year I refrained from a warm and brotherly embrace of three decades I was left stranded in the middle of nowhere Just last year, like yesterday
By this time last year Jerry, you made that iconic statement ‘Tell Goddy it is critical’ And thus you returned to your maker Hale and hearty No more pains, no more tears
By this time last year I was forced to dance without music Tears disappointed me My voice went out I was alone in the midst of multitude Just last year, like yesterday
Dear brother, By this time last year You led me into this forest of thorns With me you left a young chick – Idoma Voice Newspaper You warned me ‘no let am die’
By this time last year I asked for your prayers You prayed, God answered
Today, the chick is alive Now with an offspring – Idoma Television
Thank you for the prayers Please keep praying for me And those you left behind
Dear brother, The last 365 day was ‘kaketic’ No one to wake me with that early morning chorus again ‘Ano gbiyola lebo, ano leheyi lebo’ I miss our late night ‘gists’ Memories, memories!
A cluster of memories sprinkled with tears, Wishing God had spared you a few more years.
Tenderly I treasure the past, With memories that will always last forever.
Dear brother, We have so much to talk about Plenty stories to tell When we meet at the feet of Christ
If the son of man tarries, Please keep praying for me Because just last night Another journey of four Years ended I am alone, in the midst of this crowd
Deep in my heart a memory is kept, Of one we love and shall never forget.
God will link the broken chain, As one by one we meet again. In our hearts you will always stay
Ameh Michael and all the great Amehnites, cry no more, Jerry is dead but still speaking.
