In pain of anguish and sorrow
Like the naked sole on the broken glasses
When the blood stops not
In watering the tears of our eyes
Sun ray at the peak
Yet our clothes dry not in the tears of mourning
Tears comforting tears, running down the bridges of dried faces
This is a fairly tales of a sorrowful heart
As life lost to place of seen no more
The land of unknown but known to her
The land of our necessity refusal
At the pose of your beauty
The intense cares of your fourth smiling families
And your visage in beauty pageant
Oh death has taken one of us;
Oh death has taken Ibidunni
The reflection of greatness and strong faith
Death! Regardless of her
stigma of infertility
You cares not to distinguish
Yet snatches at your want
Oh death, your insensitivity is alarming!
Taking Ibidunni from our presence
Not yet gone in our sense
As her epitomizing deeds remain indelible in our hearts!
RIP, IBIDUNNI ITUAH-IGHODALO

As written for her
So also in a time would be written for me
And yours won’t be exception…
Live well and wisely!
