Dear Mother

Rating: 5.0
Dear sweet mother,
I thank & bless thee, oh dear mother,
So much love, can’t compare to another,
I recall thy love, hugs all thru the night,
Making me strong as a fearless knight.

Dear sweet mother,
Before my birth, below the chest,
Thou endured stress, though ne’er rest,
and o’er nine decades, thou tasted toil,
nurturing my heart, beneath the soil.

Dear sweet mother,
I’ll forget not kisses & love thou instill,
Not thy mercies, thy caress & good will.
When tears fill these eyes every morn,
I delighted thy fondness & sweet corn.

Dear sweet mother,
I eat strength from thee who impart,
Fruits of thy lips, from me ne’er depart,
but endure as an olive tree at present,
Fighting with lances during thy absent.


Dear sweet mother,
Thank so, for the love that walks along,
Ere noon, I’ll sing thou a beautiful song.
I appreciate the bright hours of thy days,
Grace to thee & carry peace all thy days.
