Happy Mothers’ Day!
I’m sure you had fun today,
As you and the cherubs sang and played.
We missed you here today
Missed your voice in the Women’s Choir
When your lips weren’t smiling, your eyes were
Your hands were either loving, or they were clasped in prayer.
He misses you a lot
Yes, a lot more than all of us combined
He still cries. A lot. Please can you make him stop?
But, Maami, wait, don’t make him stop,
‘Cause that’s what makes him strong
And we need him to be strong, because it’s on him we lean on.
The words you planted prayerfully in his heart,
Have borne fruit, of which we partake freely
The other day, standing where you lay resting,
Your reassuring whisper was borne on the wind
And that chill I felt down my spine was when your loving hand clasped mine.
Happy Mother’s Day, Maami.
He says to tell you he loves you so!
For Maami Odukoya on this special day. We miss you. Keep resting, till we meet again. Lots of love, from all of us.
