My humble mother - poetry

Updated on August 15, 2017

As she stands tall clad in her traditional regalia,

It makes me adore her more,her beauty runs deep.

Her large earrings, beads and ornaments,

makes her the goddess of beauty.

As she stands tall looking at me,

it makes me proud to have been born by her.

She wasn't hesitant to conceive me.

Blood is thicker than water.

She is the one - my creator, my gorgeous mum.

Nothing can put us asunder,

No-one can take her genes from me.

I'm a spitting image of her.

I'm over the moon to walk this earth.

She didn't have second thoughts to conceive me.

She endured the morning sickness with dignity and humility.

The stomach cramps didn't bother her.

Her main concern was to make me see the rising sun.

That smiley lady made me see the rainbow.

That beautiful sorrow made me see the rising moon.

Praise to the womb that sheltered me from wind and rain.

Kudos to the womb that made me see the solar eclipse.

That smiley lady made me realise my dreams..

She is the one, she is my mother.

That goddess of beauty is my pillar of strength.

She is the one, she is my mother.

My humble mum is my biographer.

She knows me in and out like a book,

She knows my strengths and my weaknesses.

She is the 'oasis' of my achievements.

She is the one - my earthly god.

She is the one, she is my creator.

That tall lady with an infectious smile,

Has always been there for me,

That gorgeous queen suckled me.

That smiley lady tucked me in bed,

When I was afraid of the dark and ghosts,

That smiley lady - is my comforter through thick and thin.

She was always handy when I soiled my pants.

She is the one, she is my mother.

That sweet being - I can't thank her enough..

She is the one, she is my mother,

She is an intellectual in motherhood.

She is naturally gifted with a Doctorate in Commonsense. .

She is the one,she is my mother.

She is religious, and pays her tithes.

As she grows older now,

it's now my turn to look after her.

It's now time to cheer her up.

It's now time to pay back her generosity and love.

It's now time to appreciate the wonderful upbringing she gave me.

She is the one, she is my mother.

It's now time to take her for a walk to the woods.

And enjoy nature and reflect on the journey of life,

We have traversed together.

She is the one, she is my humble mother.

She shall always be.

      "Goddess of beauty" and all other powerful descriptions of your mother speak loudly of your love and respect for her. Really beautiful!
