Eniola Badmus writes an emotional tribute to her mother
She died 13 years back. Eniola dropped her picture and wrote: ”
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
to bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye
you were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know,I remember everything about you,
your voice, you smile, your touch,
the way you walked, the way you talked,
the way you looked at me, meant so much.I remember all the words you said to me,
some funny, some kind, some wise,
all of the things you did for me,
I see now with different eyes.
I remember every moment we shared,
seems like only yesterday,
or maybe it was eons ago,
It’s really hard to say.
You are gone from me now,
but one can take away,
your memory resides inside my heart,
and lights up my darkest days. Mom, Thank you for my life, I will always miss you and love you!!! Till we meet again……Goodbye!
With love from your Daughter Eniola Oluwakemi Badmus”
