Sam madeyin 1991 (Ogun States)

O, come rest in the lilies, you're mine! Blessed be your mother that birthed you brightly fine
Wish your names be written in corollas
 Upon a ceramic table's land and minks,
tried, trusted and truest one
Amongst all but on no one could be relied you took apaced I didn't know even none
Before the day is dragging done
You're like a petals before the dawn roses
Looking fairly how would your inner eyes winks

Please, come off the way of haters tonight
I should have less discernment till you proved
stirred up a while less I be moved
My lovely friend not my fiends

You're the one I love, O come rest in the lilies!
Make it your solace for I'm coming soon to join you on the Alley
 No one could be long with me in this valleys
Doors open to me you owned the keys, your dazzling smiles was
You're the light angel that shows a way
Lean and stuck you with me ever I pray

Wish you were my Mother that bred me and the foresights that gleefully lead my way
till the heavens of my perfect day
I love thee and I love thee good
Epitome of glory and Aura of beautifulness.
