JUWARA, Isatou

If tomorrow never comes

Dear mother,

just now I realized

that man's stay on earth

is but limited

and that our days

are but numbered

and being mortal I know not

what lies ahead tomorrow.

But if tomorrow never comes

just you remember

that you had a daughter

who despite her teenage rebellions

adores you.

Please mother,

do tell my father

and my brother

that in spite of our differences

they were dear to my heart.

But to you my love

if tomorrow never comes

do remember those beautiful eyes of mine

that once mirrored the flame of love

that burneth within my heart.

And do remember

that though life be short

and unpredictable

its still a beautiful life, live it

I did!
