An Ode To My Aunt Norma Lilia Poem by Rose Marie Juan-austin

An Ode To My Aunt Norma Lilia

Rating: 4.8


On the tablet of my heart
Her name is well written
Next to my mother's name
She is as close
As a tight embrace
Her care is like a mother
To me and my brother
And my thirteen cousins.

Born with a zodiac sign Leo
She resembles the lioness
Love her
She will love you
A thousandfold more
Hurt her
She will get back to you
With a thundering roar.

She loves everything that is fiery
Red and orange specially
A strong -willed woman
She could sail through hundreds obstacles
A discipline that comes from within
She defies age
By being vibrant and sexy
An amazing personality.

She always says;
'' Life is like being in a battlefield
When you hit the lowest lows
There's only one way to go
Up
Up
Up.''

Her wisdom and teachings
Are like clusters of gems
I kept them
In the core of my heart
And in the deepest recesses
Of my mind.
