In Memory of Mrs A. O. Oloniyo

Mum, I couldn't easily fathom that you would be going too soon;

And that was the reason you showed up in my dream a fortnight before your demise.

The memory of my childhood flashed as I heard of your demise…

Was it of your efforts in teaching me how to read Yoruba Bible?

I still remember vividly, when I was assigned to read the last verse of the morning devotion Bible passage...

And gradually I could read a full passage...

 I could remember when I took the first position in Primary 3...

What you gave me was a special dish… Smile!

 I could remember the smack when I picked up a bad habit.

All these paid off and whenever I reminiscence

I always put my best in whatever I do...


My life would never have been complete if not that I passed through the tutelage of your motherly nurture from infant to childhood...

 It was divinely orchestrated and I wonder what I would have become without those norms and values you inculcated in me.


I feel unfulfilled for not seeing you before you left as I planned to...

But you left me with a good memory of my childhood,

All the lessons learnt and good teachings by you… are the memory I will live with all my life.


Rest In Peace, Mum.

Standing here together,
Your eyes
pouring cement over my feet.

Usually words are exploding out.
Veils flying up all around.

Now Jealous of the way a birds song

floats along.

The voice in my head asking
",Will I get out alive my love?"

My Love oh my Dove
The day that our love 
would find its way
From my heart into your soul
Embrace It until it's wings grow tall
And It's legs cease to crawl
Then we shall stroll
Serene celestial shore
With you in my arms oh my Love

My love

O mother of affections,
Heartthrob of my spirit
Lovebird of a darling soul;
like a river, you let
Love flow through my heart
O my love.

You are my pain curing,
You are my thoughts hearing,
You are my progress rising,
That's why soul of mine is good..
You are that person who blessed me like a tactor,
You are my bene factor,
And don't let me lose hope,
That's why soul of mine is good..

When I saw him, my charming prince.
The burden that filled my heart,
melted away. At the sound of his angelic voice. Ho, my lovely charming prince.

A sweet sensation, I can sense the flavour.
As the butterfly, flying in my stomach.
Aroma and splendor of a beautiful live well spent.
