Mummy Sade as one of the covenant child
Of Abraham , and indeed the child of Pa Noah
Whatever she lays her hand upon
Becomes instantaneously prosperous
Similola as the connotes, resting continually
In, beside ,out and within wealth.
Hardly will one know that all the while
Mama Ondo keeps calling her name to ascertain
Whether she was sleeping or not, echoing:
Roseline , Similola
Se we sun e e
Yei me sun
Se me e piroro e e
She was not dizzying but looking into her tomorrow.
She has steadily piroro into God’s abundant wealth.
Rose a discreet philanthropist
Ordained to give out to sundry and all
Like the cheerful Samaritan.
Shinning Rose, an African woman with good
Burning desires for others .
Roseline, a woman like a man
In the business world ,full of energy, Passion
And exceptional knowledge
You remain a source of inspiration
And wisdom to many
No wonder why you are a star
In the sky shinning in a million way
Rose, an African Queen
Ever beautiful as the early morning roses
Pretty and charming like sweet sixteen
Even in her ten out of Golden Jubilee
Rejoice for today is the day
Made by the Lord.
