To My Mentor: On his day

Come is this day
November the tenth of 
every year
When Kehinde 
remembers joinin the 
fray
Of this world so full of 
things fearful and dear.

Going down memory lane
One remembers that he 
cried
To those around who 
laughed at his eforts so 
vain
And they welcomed him 
with hands tested and 
tried.

Now when he 
remembers dat day
He is always happy and 
gay
Cos the sadness of 
yesteryears are gone
Exactly like the bullets 
from a gun.

As you celebrate your 
day this year
I wish you a day as 
white as snow
Which is as sweet as 
honey and soft as pear
And also free from 
stress and sorrow.

The years you have 
ahead
Will be full of joy and 
success
That tail you will not be 
but always the head
And finally you get 
every want in excess.

Granted are all these 
by God Almighty
Who is capable of 
things low and mighty!
