Tribute to Dad

My dad was always in a hurry to give
And never hesitated to forgive
He thought first of his neighbour
Before any established culture

My dad believed in unity
Especially in the strength it gives to family
He always gave excuses for people’s failings
And smiled through any circumstances

My dad loved his children above all
He always had our back
Even when he disagreed on principle
He always listened to understand

– Osasu Oviawe
