I will proclaim your name
you whose smile rivals the sun…
whose laughter dares the wind
Oluwanifemi…my precious son.
Your name is an unending flame
of whose fame I will sing.

I will hold your hands
through every treacherous way…
I will be your shield
with love that’ll forever stay.
Across known and foreign lands
to you, my all, I yield.

Yes! a time will come
when my strength will fade
for no man lives for ever
but till my last breath fade
like a candle in the storm,
I’ll be the best dad ever!
