(A poem dedicated to Ms NancyLee Seifert)

There’s a little lady down the road

She holds a big piece of my heart

She’s held it for quite a while

But I’ve now only come to realize how big of a piece she held

Little lady down the road

I would say give me that piece back

But that’s not what I want to say

What I want to say is; Thank You

Thank you for your kindness

Thank you for your kind heart

Thank you for making me a part of you

Thank you for being there

Thank you for listening

Thank you for sharing

You leaving before me is oddly good news

But please tell Abba I miss him.

There’s a little lady down the road

And I’m holding a big piece of her

~ Poem by Gloria Edokpa
