Good Mother

A sun amongst dark stars in the blue sky,
A rose in the forest of wild flowers,
Her benevolence makes men not to cry,
Her tantalizing love falls like showers,
Mind and patience taller than many towers.

    Olusegun...I think I shall cry...when a young man points out the finer attributes of a woman it makes my heart glad. One day when u begin your family, I will return the favor by writing of the GOOD FATHER!!! A holy hug to u, friend. Thinking of u and your family across the way this Christmas season! All smiles here!!
