Best Mothers (Specially Dedicated To R. Saidi And My Mother-In-Law, And All Mothers) - Poem by GERALD SAIDI

When it rained
Blotting out
And firewood
Was wet
Lightning striking its paws
Thunder roaring
Darkness consuming
You could go out
Into the rain
To make fire
No matter
How tasking it was
You would ensure
Our rumbling stomachs
Get satiated

When your pocket
Dried out
No food to feed us
Nowhere to borrow money
No forthcoming sanctuary
No one willing
To give you a hand
You still thrived
You strove
And your blessed hands
Shoved food
On our tables
You sacrificed
To clothe our spirits
With inner joy
You waived
Your needs
To line our faces
With heartwarming smiles
You went out of your way
To school us
At splendid schools
To roof our heads
With enriching knowledge
And relinquished
Your desires
To afford us extra tutelage

You still forfeit
Your needs
You still unreservedly
You still love
Without limitation
You still strive
To make sure
We walk
Along the path of virtue
And desire us
To progress after progress
No regress
But redress
Where we went wrong
Heaven lies at your feet
Goodness lies within your arms
Virtue sits on our heart
Perseverance roost in your soul
Thank you for all your efforts
Thank you for loving
Thank you for everything
Sending you love
And love always!
