I Know a Woman-Abdulkabeer Ibn Tijani

by Kabeertijani

 I know a woman!
Whose part I tarry to Ìlè Àyé 
Sucked her natural milk for years 
Sleep on her cradle bed làì mòyé gbà 
Caused her awake in the mist of nights
I know a woman!
Who is a real Ábìyámò 
She has always sacrificed meaningful time
 Just for my Ídúnù 
Tolerated me in Ìgbà ìlè kòkòò
 A mother of five but cares for millions 
She is a perfect paradigm of our daily women
I know a woman!
 Who is a real joy of motherhood 
She has become my personal Inspiration
 Through her Íwà rèré am always feeled with Ìdùnù
 Through her religious tolerance liberated many
I know a woman!
Whose house is always crowded 
Not because she organises knees up But because she accommodates the less privilege 
She is a first lady in diaspora
I know a woman!
Who is an angel in form of ènìyàn 
She has been accorded accolades 
By the virtue of her kind heart 
Through her impeccable knowledge Towards the upliftment of others
I know a woman!
 Who appears as light in the mist of Ókùnkùn
 She never discriminate nor segregrate
 Less concern about religious bigotry and ethnic bias 
But rather strives to make an impact In the life of those that comes her way
I know a woman!
Whom through her stream of knowledge
 I have benefitted 
She was never an educatee but was nick named Ójògbòn
 Neither was she a lecturer but lectured 
Neither does she teaches but a great motivational speaker She is just a definition of an erudite scholar
I know a woman!
Who I can never forget in this market called WORLD? 
She is a woman in her prime 
An epitome of wisdom
 I know not an ordinary woman
 I know my mother
