If you ever think of a mother,
Or you try to visualize one,
Cast your gaze upon my mother.
I don’t know about yours,
but mine is one-off
And the best anyone can ever have.
My soul is full of longing
for the secrets of her care,
and her soft kind heart
even when she portrays fire
and a lioness but like mother hen
that soft heart of hers,
always come forth like the morning dawn…
Her motherly affection always sends
a thrilling pulse through me each time I recall
growing up under her rules, eating her foods…
If not her guidance
perhaps I would have been ruined,
I am so proud to call her my mom.
Happy birthday mom,
may God’s grace, mercy and protection
continue to shower upon you.
I wish you many more years on earth,
with sound health as you reap the reward
of the good seeds you have sowed.
