The depth of my love for you,
I can’t measure.
The quality and quantity,
I can’t express.
The love we shared
Is a unique one.
You have a large portion of my heart.

No one pampers me as you do,
What I ask for, you provide
When am sick, you’re there for me,
When am lonely, you chase loneliness.
Your stories, I wish to listen to always.
Your company, not compared to thousand friends around.
You are my best friend.

When am frightened by night walkers,
You encourage me with your calm words.
The fear of monthly flow,
You speak peace to the pains.
The pains of childbirth,
You encourage me to accept with joy.
As it brings gift from the Almighty.

When beaten and yelled at by my mum,
You show up with your comforting smile
Though your mum attacks you for little flaws,
I accept you with them, you always say;
When I ruin dinner with salt
And pound yam with seed like stones,
You accept it as mistake and eat them with me.

I love you is an understatement.
The flesh of my flesh,
The blood of my blood.
What shall I compare you to?
I cried my eyes out
When I lost you to death.
You’re forever in my heart
Dear grandmother!
