A Poem For Tise, Daddy's Daughter! Pius Adesanmi (27 February 1972 10 March 2019)

ise is her daddy's buddy
Pius was his daughter's pally.
The two gelled like twofold.
While at home, the twosomes
Are clubby. Away from home,
They paired in absentia.
Tise, daddy is with you forever!

Tise, your dad dazzled the world
With his intellectual acumen
He mesmerized us with his
Witticisms and erudition.
A gifted satirist who predicted
the reunification of naughty Nigerians!

 

Tise, your daddy's mien
Is an everlasting gift for you
To shape your future and us.
Though, your toddler's life
Is innocent to discern his absence.
Your expectation is for daddy
To come back home to his usual
Buddy-buddy with you.

Your joy when you grow up
Is daddy's larger-than-life persona.
An outsized figure that lived
A short but momentous life.
Daddy's effervescent life was apt;
A roadmap for your journey
To succeed in life!
Take a solace in your mused daddy.
A bubbling timber and prodigious
giant-child who left us in grief.

 

You're loved by millions
Of Homo sapiens
Who cherished your daddy's,
Expansive and memorable life.
Tise, you shall grow up greater than
Your dad to famously complete
His uncompleted works.

Amen!
