Omo Oba Lo Umosen - Poem by Hezekiah Tiamiyu
My heart, my confidence
For you made me never depressed
I'll cherish you all your years
My now, my future,
As you have taught me great culture,
I shall save you from all torture
My love, my earth,
For you have given me great health,
I shall bathe you my wealth
Omo oba lo umosen
My joy, my dress-sense,
Since we live only once,
I'll adore you every sunset
Ma belle princesse
My one, my only
Since you have loved me wholeheartedly,
I shall surrender to your love fully
My beautiful princess
The only one I want,
I shall not stop this poem with a dot,
As my praise for you goes on and on
