IN LOVING MEMORY of Prof. Frank Ukoli


By Ochuko Tonukari

 


God looked around his garden,
And saw an empty space.
Then he looked down into his earth,
And saw Frank’s lovely face.

He put his arms around him,
And lifted him to rest.
His garden must be beautiful,
Because he only picks the best.

A million times we'll miss Prof.,
A million times we'll cry.
If love could have saved him,
He never would have died.

In life we loved him dearly,
In death we love him still.
In our hearts he holds a special place,
No one could ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose him,
But he did not go alone,
For part of us went with him,
The day God took him home.
