She was a mother like no other
Stronger than most others.
I know you know she’d like nothing better
Than for you to continue to be a pillar
To your brothers and your sisters.
So, be consoled my brother
For the Almighty Father
Will surely give her shelter
And a fitting welcome on that side
For her good deeds on this side.
On my side, I’ll miss her counsel and her prayers
Face to face and on the line
Her wisdom, her knowledge and amazing intellect
The type of which no curriculum covers.
She was your mother and your siblings’ mother
She was your dear wife’s mother
She was your children’s mother
She was our mother
And she was the people’s mother.
Sleep in peace, Unforgettable Mother!
A message to Austin Isikhuemen, on the transition to glory of his precious mother, our mother, the people’s mother, Mrs Okpokhenlen Isikhuemen.
