To Mother Jacqueline - Poem by Emmanuel Fassi

My dear and lovely Mother
Very strong and never tired
For us you could stand the fire
To make us be more than others. Forever pretty Jacqueline
I want you to know, beside all
I promise not to ever fall
Below what you drawed, yes that line. Yes! Your Mother named you Tchieudji
Literally means visitor
No! A gift from the Creator
Our education was a gift. I know, whatever I've become
Is because of you my Mother
Taught me to be above others
And care every time I come home. Whatever I may do, ever
You remain, yes, my only love
The only reason why I move
And I thank you forever.
