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.
