Letter To My Mother
I was thinking of love and sacrifice, then you came to mind
I have many memories, I would like to go recall;
You held me gently from the day I took my first breath
You held me close when the tears would start to fall
You were quick to show me that you would take care of it all.
Your love to me is never ending
You gave me comfort and peace like a beautiful dove
You wipe my tears, help fight my fears,
Pray when am sick or sad, protect me as a lion to its cub,
Encourage me, no matter how far fetched it may seem
For your children, you always do your best
Even when we push you to your limits and test your patience.
You, My mother is a wonderful and phenomenal lady, that beautifully raised me
You always have a smile on your beautiful face even when you are troubled
You’ve always been a friend to all, no mater the tribe, race.
Your words are always like a golden tread that binds the family
Your wisdom, like an art that shares so generously
Oh! How lucky I am to be blessed by her.
Mama, thank you for pain at birth,
Thank you for the cures and care
Thank you for the freedoms you gave
Thank you for your help with school
Thank you for the comfort when I cried
Thank you for not discarding me like a broken doll
Which had lost it favor when am being selfish, ignorant
Thank you for finding something in me to cherish and love
Thank you for changing with me, as I changed
Thank your for accepting all my flaws
Thank you for yelling at me, when am out of place
Thank you for loving me through the hurt and;
Pains that comes my way.
Thank you for not loving because you have no
choice, but loving.
Thanks for all the things, small & large,
Your love saw fit to do.
What other way is there to thank you for your tears, heart, love, sacrifice
For thousands things you have done for so many years?
Because if I should continue,
There are just not enough words to express all the things she have shown me other than the words written above
Oh sweet mama!!
You will and always be the heart of happiness to me,
Bringing nougats of glee and
Sweet of open laughter.
I love you Mama
