Dad, words are insufficient to express the void created
Since your departure from God’s green earth
Thirty three years ago come Sunday November 10, 2013
Far too often, we find ourselves in retrospect
Of those wonderful, fatherly cherished memories
You so dearly and lovingly crafted on our mortal minds.
“Dad” Father to the fatherless
“Duke” He who seeks and addresses humanity issues
“Sec” The renowned Civil Servant and world class Diplomat
Your physical absence from this earth, has left us yarning the above
Our craving for those beautiful attributes of yours intensifies everyday
Just the thought of having you as a parent makes life more bearable.
Your generosity gives true meaning to the word “Philanthropist”
Your dedication to us brings the two word phrase “family value” alive
Your devotion to faith, mankind and principles has made this generation
Practice and emulate the actual role of what a God fearing individual should
Your physical absence makes bold your spiritual presence everyday
Because you are never far from our thoughts, your guidance is always our road map.
This poem is a dedication to the late premier indigenous Secretary of State Momolu Dukuly
