The moon

On the 9th day of October, I paused to think
Like a flashback in a play,
Browsing through all my days
Remembering how and when you came into it

Alas, I smiled unconsciously
But yes, indeed happily
Remembering that tomorrow is your birthday
I realized there was a time you were unborn

Indeed what darkness did the world know?
In the inexcusable absence of the moon
For no number of stars would
Light the night as bright as the moon.

What sadness did the earth see?
Like Africans before the adventure of the 
The agony of a hungry father waiting for months
To receive a mail from his son, a city away

The 10th of October, the world smiled
Finally darkness did give way for light
We then saw the beauty of our land
It was the beginning of another era
One moon outshining several stars
You are the moon, Ebika.

A rain is a blessing to everyone
It fills the ocean bowls
It gives life to the fishes and
Hope to the poor farmer
Wipes the tears of a groaning man
You are the rain, Ebika.

As today, you add another year
The world awaits you arrival again
For in the script of your life
You are destined to water the desert of our earth
Wipe the faces of the hungry children
Of which I know you love them
To shelter the homeless
To educate the less privilege
And in the finals analysis
To be celebrated as no woman before you

Today I celebrate you even before the world does
Cause I have seen what it hasn’t
