The “White Widow” British terror suspect involved in the Nairobi shopping mall massacre last month reportedly penned a love poem prasing Osama bin Laden and pledging to continue instilling terror into non-Muslims.

Police found the 34-line “Ode To Osama” on a computer in Samantha Lewthwaite’s Kenyan home, Sky News reported.

“Us we are left to continue what you started,” she wrote to the man who masterminded the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on America. “My love for you is like no other.”

“To seek the victory until we are martyred. To instill terror into kuffar [non-Muslims] …Your life an example of how we should be.

“Oh Muslims listen to our beloved sheik’s words, Let not his struggle and efforts go unheard, Revive what he started and strive to success, Then maybe we can be raised with the best.

“You picked the wrong army to contest. Al Qaeda are stronger and fiercer than ever. Their [sic] was no victory for you Mr Obama The honour is his on martyred Osama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” the poem concluded.

The mother of three is thought to be a key member of the Somalia-based militant group al Shabaab. Interpol has issued a “Red Notice” seeking her arrest, NBC News reported.

She was married to Germaine Lindsay, one of the three suicide bombers who struck London’s transport system on July 7, 2005, killing 52 civilians, NBC News reported.
