Mama Matron Kudos to you 
Aunty Nurse thanks a lot
But you heard my cry 
Where you were laid fairly dead
And I could hear your voice
Where I was making noise
You kept asking 
Where is my baby?
All because of me!
As if that was not enough 
Though in pains you laughed, 
Clapped, sang and danced
Even with no drums
At your breast on your chest 
Very close to your heart 
With every act and art of care
You fed me with milk
Till I'm filled to the brim 
You would never eat
You could lay me on several places
But you carried me at your back 
And faced all the arrows 
That life shot at me at childhood  
All because of me!
You touched me 
As you taught me 
Your teachings are true
And your finger prints 
Are all over me
They can never be forged
Or duplicated
And anywhere I go
They are everywhere on me
Thanks for your mother-friendly care.

As the sun rises
I remember your smiles 
Racing across the miles
All like stars in my sight 
Not with a bait 
But weights of love 
From all heights
It becomes brighter
I remember your laughs
Like the moon brakes forth
Send me some smiles 
Across the miles 
And they would find me. 
When the earth quavers   
You held my hands 
To help my heart
Though you grow old 
As you advance in age
It behooves your body 
To beseech an abode below

Your spirit prepares 
For the final flight of faith
That needs no plane or pay
Thus, your motherhood 
All through my child-adult-hood
Forever holds 
If you had written your names 
On the pages of my diary 
It could be lost 
But you have inscribed it 
On the plate of my heart 
It can only take time 
To be remembered
Dedicated to V.A Aderounmu.
