Mothers Love - Poem by Mixo Malepfane

She wanted me all her life
She loves me more than she loves herself
Sacrificing herself for me has always been her way
She told me I am her best

Her selflessness has made me love her more
I know that without her I would not be
Everything I know she taught me
I sometimes wonder if I would equate to her level

Did I tell you she was the first to wipe my tears and sorrows away
I am her living dream and I hope to be a true dream
I am a man today because she was a woman
I am a father today because she was a mother
I know a woman’s worth because she made me understand

Before me, she was a lover with the world at her feet
Even after me is still a lover but a mother
She says I gave her courage
She says I am her pride but I should not have pride
Did I tell you who this woman is
It is you my sister
And this woman is in you
