I am striking you
Out of my address book,
But for the higher regulator
Has called you to the highest home
We all long for
but go to unwillingly.
I can’t striking you out of my heart,
For the favour of the tutelage,
Making a protégé of me
Without knowing the bird that birth me
On the sheer recommendation of your daughter.
Shared passion and ideas,
She shielded me,
She moulded me,
What else can I expect?
May you find rest,
May your labour yield abundant fruits,
For all your protégé,
I can’t strike out the grief.
Adieu Mama Dupe Omole!
