When Shall Come the Day?

When shall come the day?

© 2003 Jediah Logiodice

Two months ago,

they told us you had a cancer

a cancer eating through you

taking over your body

threatening to steal your existence.

But .. not today ..

Two days ago,

they told us you were getting near

an enemy that could not be destroyed

was on your door step

threatening to close your eyes

but .. not today ..

Two hours ago,

they told us you were gone


just slipped away, some thief unseen

took you away, it was expected

but ..


today ..

Two years ago

We asked you to quit

it’s going to kill you

We all care for you, grandpa

You said, “Maybe i’ll quit”






In memory of my Grandpa Ken – who was always going to quit tomorrow.
