Who is the character,
I am about talking about?
Who is the person that caught my fancy right now?
Who is she that is forcing me to pen?
Who is she that is holding my line of thought right now?
She is a woman,
She is a mother,
She is a wife,
She is a grandmother.
She is more than a script,
She is more than a story,
She is a rare gem,
She is a diadem,
She is a diamond,
She is an enigma,
She is an oracle.
She is a goddess,
She is everything good.
I became known to her as a son,
We became her children,
She gave us life,
She is like a rock of Gibraltar till now,
She is an edge of support to us,
She dared all insults, shame and reproaches when the going become tough and rough,
She became all we can think about in life.
She struggled successfully to give us hope.
While we are growing,
Her help became our world,
She denied herself comfort to make us comfortable.
She became naked for us to cover our nudity.
She taught us the pride of being hardworking,
She tutored us to make a name through our challenges.
She is still all we knew,
She is still our hope,
She is still our help.
We can never have a better mother than her,
We can never have a better grandmother than her.
We can never hope for a better figure in any other woman.
While growing up,
She defied every obstacle to make her contribution in our life,
While growing up,
She was busy doing three different jobs to put food on the table.
She is a good description of ruggedness and endurance,
Her perseverance and endurance is beyond our understanding,
Her dedication to make her children better is heavenly,
Her hope of a better tomorrow for all her children and grandchildren is eternal.
What can I do to pay her back,
We have nothing to pay her back.
All we have is appreciation.
All we have is to celebrate her on a day like this.
All we have to do,
Is to tell the entire world her story.
All we can do is to make the entire humanity aware of her dedication
So that her benediction on her birthday will be heard all over the world.
She is 65 years today.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MUM—MRS JNM FADEYI
She is my life.
May God bless you with more of today.
