I Miss A Mother - Poem by Freewill Amon

I miss a mother:
Who would be there when she has to be
Who is not afraid of challenges,
But looks them in the eye and deal with them point-blank
Who is an epitome of a real woman.

I miss a mother:
Who would've also been a friend to me
Who would've told me that life's not what it's cracked-up to be
Thereby been my coach and referee
Whose words would've kept me safe and free.

I miss a mother:
Who would've made me a coat of many colours
And at least make my friends envy me
Who would've told me that I can be a survivor
And thus make the whole world sing my praise.

I miss a mother:
For whose sake I wouldn't have envied my friends
Whom I wouldn't have hated to come home to by the weekend
Whom no other woman alive can take her place
Whose song I would've loved more than those of the 'Women Of Faith.'

I miss a mother:
Who would've taught me to love my father
Who would've been a guide and a comforter
Who would've taught me to love my siblings
Whose love cannot be blown away by the wind.

I miss a mother:
Well, I thought I had one
But I'm sorry she's gone
I didn't represent her like a son
Because she thought I was a son of a gun.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Get it that I aint missing my mum (though late) . I'm just missing a mother- a woman figure who would take the place of a mum. In case you might wonder why I aint missing my mum, it's because she didn't play her role. When she passed I had to look for a reason to cry. Though it took me time to, it was just a cry of pity- not of mourning. So you ladies out there got to represent so that you won't look like a stranger before your children. You all are suppose to be the sweethearts of your children.
