To My Mother

To you dear mother ,
I pay this homage
To celebrate your boundless love
and rare courage.

Whenever I fell ill
or felt pain inside,
You were always there
caring , by my bedside.

You spent sleepless nights
to cater for my needs.
This is the apex of love
and what sacrifice means

You sowed in me
seeds of devotion and respect
Now , they have bloomed
into rosy prospects

Though illiterate ,
you’re a well of wisdom
Full of witty ideas
and matchless decorum

As peaceful and lovely as a dove
You’re the soul of the family
and my symbol of love.
