I just have a poser,
Why did leave so soon ?
When your generosity is in great boom ?
Splitters of kindness ,
Depicts your unmistakable goodness ,
Why did you go?
Leaving us in sorrow?
You are not just an unforgettable ,
You are an irreplaceable ,
Your character is seen only among angels ,
Oh!You have gone to be with the angels ,
I know you are heaven ,
On earth here you created for your kith and kin heaven ,
You were a man with a large heart ,
That think not for any one bad ,
Still you lived a Spartan life ,
Making people Happy was your major like ,
You lived so that others may live ,
You had so that others you will give ,
You gave for no reason ,
You gave in all seasons ,
Hallmark of a true giver ,
You were like a river ,
Flowing with the milk of human kindness ,
This has reduced our sadness ,
Your death may have caused for many emotional instability ,
But you have by your works achieved immortality.
Captain Hosa ,
Your virtues were top notch ,
For all you did that were posh ,
For the lives you touched so much ,
this eulogy is just a tip of the iceberg,
For one of Edo’s Best ,
A man who had a good dress sense,
Yet still reticent .
Captain Hosa ,
You gave jobs and businesses to many ,
Many from lack to surplus you ferried ,
Wish life will ever have a reversal,
So you you reckon the betrayals ,
But one thing is very certain ,
Edos will miss you dearly ,
Because Captain Hosa ,
From Ekenwan to Urokhosa ,
There can never be another you ,
Heaven sure has an occupant that is brand new ,
And that person can only be you !
