mother and child

Pikin dey cry…
Where she dey…
Where she dey…
Who be she…
From anywhere u go hear “Mama”

Which kind love she get
Love wey dey make pikin laff
You dey rush?
Mama go give you time

You don miss road
Mama go be your Google
You too get cold
Mama go give you cuddle

My mom,
My sun,
The key to my fun
Anxieties, mom gets them shunned
Tears of agony, she brings to its nought

The moon seem tired
What a smile that takes me higher
Greatly, set forth is the moon
Now brighter is every mood
What boredom she subdued
