Requiem for a Friend by Leonard Dabydeen

Requiem for a Friend
(Albert Budhoo, former GAWU President – Guyana)

In the deep crevices
Of the mind
Where pleasure and pain
Subside but cannot hide,
His was a fathomable ride
To query , seek, or find;
Every quest a mortal combat
For assurance of the child,
Of a friend,
Of a comrade,
No matter circumstances
Inscribed or subscribed
And with pleasant smile;
And so to bow in silence
And gesture in affinity
Wishing him this abiding farewell,
Is only to let his soul
Go places where man
Cannot go alone without grace.
