I love you mum

(from Daddy, Nnanna, Akudo, Chinma,Uju, Amaka to Mummy on mothers’ Day)

When titles are little and words are few
At this distance I’m thinking of you
When people don’t laugh and ages renew
Through words I reach out to you
I love you mum, fiercely
For every time you made me see
I love you mum, dearly
For all the sacrifices you made for me
For being stubborn
For standing out
For being bright
For loving dad
I love you mum
For each one of my sisters
For being strong unafraid to glitter
I’m thankful for circumstances that led me to you
I’m happy for the life that has stuck me to you
I love you for being part of my life
And letting me bother you
For letting me sneak into your prayers and fill you
I’m grateful
Please stay alive, strong and happy
For each one of us
God is here, in colours in your decades and moments
Warmly from us in places there, near and far
Still blessed by the kindness you are.
