Ballad of a Dead Hero

I'm a mathematician and have taught mathematics and related courses for over 3 years. Still working on myself. Still I rise

Ballad of a Dead Hero

Lord, after so many years I shed so many tears

Somebody please wake me from this dream

I still can't believe you're gone

You lived a selfless life

You accepted all who came to you

Regardless of their fate,belief,race or tribe

You taught me Light, Life and Love and lived by them daily

You lived a life free from regrets

You taught me that everything happens for a reason

Now I am forced to accept that

You believed so much in "Ehi" and He never failed you.

Words can't ever express how I feel

I appreciate how you raised me

And all the extra love that you gave me

If I had one wish,

I would wish you back

If there's a reincarnation,

I would want you back as my father

Tears still rolling down my cheeks.

I wonder what life would be without you,

How do I live without you?

How do I carry on?

I shed tattoo tears

So much pain in my heart as I write

Memories of you are all I got now

Though you are gone,

You will always live in my heart with unconditional love

I love you daddy and will miss you everyday

Sleep on MY HERO in the bosom of the Lord

Till we meet to part no more

My Hero
