Dear Mama - Poem by victor onyango

An open letter to mama

More than a decade is gone
Since you left never to return
Left with no trace
Our hearts are still torn
Your sons and daughters we still miss you
Can i tell you something mum?
Your two daughters are married off
And their first born daughters are named after you
How does that feel?
Aren't you going to ask how about your sons?
I know you,
Don't pretend you don't want to know
Because i will tell you all the same
Both ares till enjoying the fruits of their bachelorhood

But mum, can you see us?
Are we what you wanted us to be?
If you were here, would you be proud of us?
What would you say about us?
Don't you think life would be different?

Without you we felt lost
But every thought of you is a basis of our strength
Your will to serve
Your desire to achieve
Your concern for the unfortunate
Your passion and enthusiasm for life
Your dream for a better tomorrow
And unconditional love for all

Your mark is imprinted in our life and hearts
We are proud of you mum
We love you
our regards to your right hand man[dad]
we love him too

yours family

    Nice poem... If you were here, would you be proud of us?
    What would you say about us? ... We often wonder if we are who our loved ones expect us to be.
