In our minds

Some memories never leave us, this is the case of my good friend John Benjamin Annoh-Quarshie who passed on five years ago-10th July 2008. This poetry is dedicated to his memory.

In our minds

Tho’ you took the wind
Out of our sails
When you so hastily
Departed that day
We remember you
Still
Fresh in our minds
Fresh in our hearts
(7/8/13)

You touched our lives

When the days disappear
Into months
And the years become misty
We shall always remember
You
Johnny
For you touched our lives
And we cannot forget
(7/8/13)

Your memory

We will seek healing
But not because
We want to forget
We will try to move on
But not because
We want to discard
We will seek calmness
But not because
We want to quiet out things
Your memory will always
Be with us
Dear Johnny
(7/8/13)
