On a day like this


There are no songs played, this day
There is no dance, on open floors 
There are no cakes to cut

There are no words for celebratory remarks
Glass raised in honour, a speech on toast absent 
There are no cards with personalized messages 

There are no flowers to be placed in jars 
There are no walks in the park after dine 
No embarrassing stories to tell 

There are just thoughts for the day 
Reflection and memories we hold 
And the heart sits heavy with miss 

Missing innocent smiles 
With each distant mile that lies 
Between you and I on this day....

On a day like this  
From a distant on a day like this 
On this day

  2. This reads tender...like a love song. Yeah, it's hard to be far from those we love on days like these. Sometimes, the distance is an impossible one...

  14. Fathers. We often gush with affection when they are not around. But shy away in presence. All the more reason to appreciate your beautiful tribute, Kodjo Deynoo.
