MRS. DOROTHY OPARE BAIDOO

There are many trees which fall
…when the least winds call
There are many buildings which collapse
…when their foundational time elapse
You’re a mountain
That is why you turned into a captain
…when storms overtook your home
…till you reached your Rome
Ayekoo Ɔbaa

II
You’ve been a soldier on this battlefield of life
You’ve been a great fortress, a great wife in strife!
You’ve been an earth which never quaked
…even when thunders burned your stakes!
You’ve been a you none can’t be
He who travels yonder says
…oyiwaladɔɔn!

III
You’re a beautiful model to your blessed children!
You’re a great leader to your awesome brethren!
You’re one strong soul in a lovely whole!
You’ve been that great goal
…your traveling companion scored
How much can a human be adored?
Sweetness,
…you’re a goddess of goodness!

IV
I celebrate you!
I so celebrate your resilience even when you manned
I celebrate you!
Felicitations on your wins even in your loss!
I hail you!
Even storms can touch no tail on you
For you’ve fought and won
…so many battles difficult even for the armored
I pray you hold onto your victory
…as you grieve
…in order to receive all your blessings
…piled above
Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia © February 7, 2021 for Mrs. Dorothy Opare Baidoo, a friend who stood by her husband and took charge of her home, when he had an unfortunate work accident for years, till his recent demise. Blessings to you dearest. You wanted poetry but I’ve added an ovation of reverence. Blessings to you and yours always. And once again, my condolences.

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
