Poet: Oso Olasunkanmi
She kicks sleep aside
To see me becoming great
She reads her way to confidence
To build mine
She tries to beat the time
Even when she is weak
Just to see me get strong and walk high to the top
Principled but soft spoken.
Yes, A woman in her prime
who teaches with love
Even in pain and joy, she smiles to build a man I am trying to become
Mentoring me through the rough terrain of academics
And testing my ability to stand the test of time.
I wish I can write a long epistle to show my appreciation
But this would do no justice.
I wish I can sing like the Nightingale
But my voice is failing me.
I called on the great supreme being
Surprisingly he granted my request
That your tomorrow be great than your today
Your future best of your better tomorrow
Dreams coming to fulfilment
Greater you, more than you can imagine
All in sound mind and peace from above.
Finally, from me thanks for your time and impartation in my life
As I wish you a splendid birthday and many more you can ever dream of.
