LETTER TO MY MOTHER: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME…
All Glory to God for this Day and All thanks to my Mother for her Great endurance.
I Was the only one who almost took your life at delivery, I am Grateful Jesus returned you.
Though, its my Birthday, yet, I would celebrate you who made that Physically possible.
Great is your strength,
Your pain shall be rewarded,
Years of labour I cannot forget,
The world is filled with mothers,
Men have mothers,
I have a god mother,
You are my Jewel of inestimable value,
A rare gem,
You worry tho,
What more can I say,
Your son is a beautiful dreamer,
Who wouldn’t be worried anyway,
Today is your third birthday,
And today begins your glory days,
I command the Angels to guard you,
Any jealous fellow is a rootless tree,
Some tried to replace you,
They call themselves step-**,
They can only be a stair case filled with steps,
You will trample them under your feet Mama,
What some men can never do,
You beat their imagination,
You baffle their intellect,
I pray they humble themselves,
No! Your children shall humble them,
Iya in Wura,
Mother is a worthy Gold,
A Golden treasure,
Costly to be sold,
Your days shall be merry and Bright,
I know that the birth of a son is a foothold in these part of the world,
Your great great grand children will also be your foothold,
I am grateful you are here,
I am happy I am here too….
For when I cried at your side inside the labour room,
You smiled and your heart filled with joy,
Such ecstasy thrilled your soul,
A monument began,
The Battle line was drawn,
Your critics languished their attacks all day,
Neither did they rest at night,
Orisa bi Iya, ko si !
A Son from my bowels,
My King at hand,
My Prince at last,
God bless you.
Happy remembrance Joy Day for you.
