""Iyaniwura"

A piece of gold
...rare gift
"abiyamo"...
...day and night toiling

Mother!
...a stalwart
...a sound voice
Predator's scare

A lioness
...gifted claws
...harmless
to her cubs..."

"ADIEU MY MOTHER...

My Mother
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My Mother.

When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gazed upon my heavy eye,
And wept for fear that I should die?
My Mother.

Who taught my infant lips to pray
And love God’s holy book and day,
And walk in wisdom’s pleasant way?
My Mother.

And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee,
Who wast so very kind to me,
My Mother?

Ah, no! the thought I cannot bear,
And if God please my life to spare
I hope I was able to reward thy care?
My Mother.

I THOUGHT AND WISHED,
When thou art feeble, old and grey,
My healthy arm shall be thy stay,
And I will soothe thy pains away,
My Mother.

You were old but not feeble and all grey,
You didn't wait for my healthy arm to be thy stay,
And there was no pain to soothe away,
My Mother.

ADIEU MY MOTHER"

"Today, I mourn not the promotion of my beloved mother to glory, but to

celebrate a life well lived. My mother was a great woman, a pillar of strength,

Mummy was the truest, the dearest; she was indeed more than a mother to me

.she was the glue that bond our family together. She always directed us towards

the right path and was steadfast in providing us with sound advice on how we

could face the challenges of life. Early in life, she inculcated in us the values of

hard work, respect, deep sense of gratitude as well as how to harmoniously

coexist with others. She strongly believed that in order to succeed, hard work

was a quintessential element.

Today, we are gathered here to celebrate the life of a great woman, a mother, a

grandmother, an aunt, a sister, a mentor, a pillar of strength. God in His infinite

wisdom has seen it proper that she should take a rest.

Isn’t it amazing when we say, am tired, He says I will give you rest (matt 11:28-

30) we say: it’s impossible. He says: all things are possible (Luke 18:27) we say: I

can’t go on, He says: my grace is sufficient (2 COR 12:9). In that wavelength, we

wholly accept the will of God. We wholeheartedly thank God for the time He

allowed us to spend with our beloved mother; we offer thanksgiving for the

strength He gave her to see us through childhood, for the many wise teachings

and above all for the little joys of life.As we inter the remains of my mother to its

final resting place, I beseech my brothers and sisters to be strong willed, to

rejoice in the fact that GOD blessed us with such a great mother.

Adieu Dearest Mum.
