A Tribute to My Dad, My Hero
Dad, I didn’t expect to say bye now. I thought I was going to see
you atleast once more before this day, for this I am sad at so many
things I couldn’t do for you or say as well as the fact that I was late
in arranging your visit.
♦◊♦
I remembered as a child how I used to love been around you, I
followed you everywhere, from office to church, I was called
Daddy’s secretary back then because I followed you.
Even in my mid forties, I still consider myself a “daddy’s girl”. You
were my ‘Popsi’ and I loved you to bits despite all issues. The bond
we share is unlike any other connections for we spoke about
everything and anything.
♦◊♦
Dad, I love you for an infinite number of reasons. I feel so blessed
to have had you as my father, you taught me about God, you
showed us the way in a world full with false religions and worships.
You brought us up in the way of God and showed us that God is all
we need in a world of challenges and these helped me in my most
trying times.
♦◊♦
Thank you for providing me and my siblings a family, the physical
and emotional security you provided. I remembered as a child our
numerous beach outings, our Apapa amusement park outing and
so many family events we enjoyed growing up with you and our
darling mum.
♦◊♦
Thank you for the gifts of ‘fanta and biscuits’ you gave me
whenever I came 1 st in the class and your support through to uni.
thank you for going all the way to my Uni in Ogbomosho to obtain
my degree certificate when I requested for it for my document
application.
Thank you for listening to me whenever I called in my distress and
your encouragements.
I love you Popsi. Adieu Dad. May your soul rest in perfect peace.
