To My Cordial Coach

For my amiable big sis and M. A Supervisor, Dr. Adedoyin Aguoru, on her birthday...
You have transcended that bridge;
That bridge in the skies of knowledge.
You are that skilled coach on her siege;
Yet, you never relented in reaching life's ridge.

The smiles, cry, sweet, sour, and strive;
You have them all swimming in your archive.
Today says you scaled through all alive.
Today explains they were just for you to dive.

My ink joins others to wish you a graceful day;
A day of joy, happiness, and goodness all the way;
The way that will lead you to greater heights to stay;
To stay grounded as that leading coach without a sway.
