Flowers for Aramide

Dear Aramide, 

I bring flowers in your honour, 

A thousand red roses for the work you did for humanity ,

A thousand white roses for the hope you put in the orphans you helped, 

One million daffodils for the impact you made via World Pulse, 

One billion lilies for the foundation you founded, 

And finally,  countless morning glories for the legacy you have left mankind. 

May you find a garden filled with these flowers in heaven. 

Adieu,  brave heroine.

You're welcome dear sister Busayo.

Hello, sis Geraldine,

What a heartwarming tribute this is for Aramide. You gave her what you love best: gardening. I can imagine Aramide enjoying the fragrance of flowers you sent her, dear.

Thank you for caring!

Hey Karen. I never saw the tribute through your own lense. Oh yes, it's flowers and they come from a garden. Yes it's true, I love gardening, I love to plant flowers and food and trees. I enjoy it so much. I am a sister to flowers and plants and trees you know. are peaceful friends right?
Yes, Aramide is surely enjoying the fragrance of all those beautiful Blossom's wherever she is?
Thanks so much sister Karen.
Have a beautiful day my dear.

Hello, dear,

That was the first thing that came in my mind when I read your poem. :)

Amen, sis. You're welcome, sister. You, too!
