Sade's Son

Sade’s Son

For us all

You gave your whole life

You gave your love

All that you could

Not much in materials

But priceless in value

Great thanks to you

Merci beaucoup

For the lessons

The discipline

Care and affection

You bore all sorts

Enmity, tension

You’ve sacrificed so much

Too numerous to mention

Great pains

You’ve endured

For us to walk tall

Your wish

Your ardent desire

Was caring for us

It never wavered

T’was very hard

Saying goodbye

I miss you so much

That I could cry

I always pray,


To make you proud

I am proud today

That I had you



Sade’s son

Happy birthday

My dearest darling mum
