Checkout: Toni Payne Pens Touching Tribute To Zara Gretti


The young Nigerian singer, Margaret-Mary Oluwatoyin Ejiroghene Joseph, better known as Zara Gretti, who succumbed to the cold hands of death about two weeks ago, was buried last Friday at the Ikoyi Cemetery but many who knew her have not been able to come to terms with her sudden demise.
Broken hearted, they have been sending her touching tributes and the latest to go that route is former wife of ‘Gonga So’ crooner, 9ice, Toni Payne, who wrote a soulful poem for the pretty damsel who lost the battle to Multiple Sceloris.

Toni Payne titled the poem ‘Heaven just gained a beautiful angel.’

Read the poem here:

As I look through the years, the life that you lived

I know you are smiling because through your music you live

No sickness could take that from you

No disability would dare

As we do our best to remember you as you were

The memories you gave, the love you shared

No more tears, that’s not what you would want

I take solace in knowing you are home

I cry no more because I accept

Heaven couldn’t wait for this beautiful angel

We celebrate your life, a vibrant one it was

A singer, a dancer, a free spirit,

Full of life, yes you were

I choose to remember you as you were

I know you would have wanted nothing less

And take solace in knowing and accepting

Heaven just gained a beautiful Angel

Vivacious, playful, cheerful and free

Those are some of the words that come to me

When I think of you and the times we shared

We would be here all day if we tried to compare

Words to a soul as unique as yours

How can I fully describe you with mere words?

The pain is over, uncertainty no more

Dancing in heaven, as free as can be

We that are left should take solace in knowing

Heaven just gained a beautiful Angel.

So touching…… Zara Garetti still lives in our hearths.
