The Trial Triumphant

He is gone!
What? What did you just say?
Mhhhm, he is really gone.
Oh my God, it can’t be true, how can it be? No, no!
What are we going to do now?
Who will….who will…and who will?
I remember the last time I saw him
I remember the last words he told me
They are so dear now and come alive like never before
Oh, may I never forget, may I never forget!
Oh God, life can’t go on being the same
There has got to be a change
I’ve got to do something
I know that I must go someday, but when I do,
I want to go like him. So, I must live so!
My thoughts, just thoughts, but I wasn’t alone.
A fire went off so that many would come alive,
Come alive to true living, living like he did,
A proof to the world, that Christianity and loving Christ,
Isn’t a monumental disaster
No! It’s the fullness and the beginning of real living
In memory of you Dr Ayo Olofin
Many times, I wish you were around
Your life has inspired me, your death awakened me
Wish you were here today to see a changed me,
The other lovely side of your daughter
But sleep on; we’re doing fine and day by day,
Young men and women, working in the footprints you’ve left behind,
Are coming up to AIMTOPS
