I will forget you not

She wakes up early morning
to prepare me breakfast
Dress me up for school
she holds my hand tight
filling my ears with words 
of wisdom which always 
sings in the  back of my 
mind like the tune from 
the first morning light
that is not known to man.

This day I become like her
taking in her role in 
bringing up her granddaughter
'fill mine heart Lord, that 
I may lead them in your 
own way,' so I heard her 
plead with Father on our behalf
I made a solemn promise 
with my heart to take care of her
till end of mine own.

I hear her granddaughter singing
her the songs she took time to teach
me day by day
I saw how beautiful they were
'I am lucky,' so I thought
to myself in having both of them
in my life.

I will forget you not Mother
for showing me the beautiful
colors of life around me
for dipping your finger in
my life just to write in my heart.

I  will forget you not Mother
for painting my today yesterday
with colors of rainbow
that I may be blessed to have

I will forget not, Mother.
