Anifat: Room For One!

I have room for one in my heart

A woman I have loved all my life
A woman that’s really not mine to love
Belonging to another man
But, who I love all the same

Because love has no measure
Love has no boundary

This woman, one of a kind
Strong and resilient
Passionate and devoted
Totally faithful to hers
But, who I love all the same

Because love has no measure
Love has no boundary

A woman in my heart
Softened with a smile
Warmed with kisses
Tendered with kindness

A woman of virtue
With a sense of right
A beautiful soul
With a tender heart

An unbridled heart
Pure and true
Full of intent and affection
She loved without condition

How do you measure
The love of such a woman
Who is not yours to love
But who loves you all the same
With reckless abandon

My woman
Of another man
Who loves without care
And unruly attention

This is the woman I have loved all my life
A woman that’s really not mine to love
Belonging to another child
But, who I love all the same

Because love has no boundary
Love has no measure

She shared all with my mother
For you see
This woman I love
Was my step-mother

And the thought of her
Brings tears to my eyes
A pain in my heart
A head that hurts

My step mother
Is today a memory
For sure an ever-lasting one
A memory of love
So pure and true

Because love has no boundary
Love has no measure

Especially for a woman
Who created space
A room in her heart
For one more to love

My step-mother
Never to be forgotten
For how could someone
Who gave so much
Be gone so soon

NB: This is dedicated to our mother, Alhaja Anifat Ogungbo. Forever in our hearts.
