From My April-Room To Your Eternal-Room, Mama

I've been thinking about You the whole week
Today I think harder, especially as I guess into the sky
From my new but only an April-room
A metaphor for your passing through the earth-room

You know what I think today
Because I sense You around
You are no more bound
By flesh and its pounds

If Your Spirit were still in It
I would have sent You eti akuk
But what You value more than that
I would have also whatsapped a video call

To see You and how You are celebrated on Your Birthday
To see Your loving grandchildren sing for You
To see them eating Your cake for strength
To see them through Seventy-One kpozas! 😊

That smile brought a Peace with it
It would have been fun here, so much fun
Still much more, it is fun there, so much more fun
You no more have need of Birthday gifts, no, no needs at all

I'm glad I have no regrets right now
Having done for you all I could
While I still had the chance
This is comforting

I'm at peace right now still
Having the awareness that You knew
And still know that I did my best for you
This is more comforting

I'm at rest always on the matter of Your Transition
Having received Full Assurance
That You have been Received into GOD'S Eternal Rest
This is the most comforting of them all

Rest on Mama!
