Beacon in My Mind

Thy every deed heralds thy open love
I see God in flesh helping me
Mother dear, modest and gentle as dove
I picture myself tender like thee

Thy leap years cuddle chased my fear
Goodbye. Your answering call as close as my
Hair, your inner peace, teach me life to bear
Father told me your virtue I should buy

But to be my mama is not to be a woman
A pure heart she had said was the key
That's why the boy and the man
In father loves her still. Ingibo, father put her in me

When I become a mother and wife
My Mother, I shall live in my life

Note: Ingibo means mother
