MY LIVING GODDESS
MY LIVING GODDESS
A notice without
That fateful night
You became unbalanced
Your thoughts scattered.
You were hit by a bout of pain
You endured for its gain
Though it was your first time
You were determined to remain calm.
The pain increased
Yet you endured
To dad you even managed to smile
On the way to the hospital.
You knew it was a momentous pain
You arrived with that ultimate consolation
Still vibrating with verve and vitality
Within minutes, you brought me forth with less difficulty.
I beheld the first rays of light
I felt lost
But you were there
To drive away my fear.
You carried me lovingly, so
I clutched to you, never wanting to let go
Though I was out of you
I was very much still in you.
As I took my first faltering steps
With me always was your attention
To retrace, redirect and guide my steps
Whenever they were made in the wrong direction.
As I started into this world
Meeting folks of varying mould
The good, the bad – Angels and Devils
I saw in you how to place them on their varied scales.
When I'm confounded by the world's mysteries
You unravelled them with sweet simple stories
You told me life's riddles and jokes
Showing me it's ups and downs.
For my comfort and happiness
You are making so much sacrifice
You seem to always read my mind
‘Cos you always provide whatever I need.
You taught me how to enjoy, endure life
Through you I saw life
In you I felt life
With you solidly behind me I’m facing life.
I’ll cause grass to grow at the polar region
And get ice from a torrid zone
With a candle flame I’ll dry the Atlantic
And make mount Everest move for your sake.
My golden pearl
Your worth, words cannot tell
I'll always hold in reverence
The serenity created by your thoughts and presence.
You're my Oasis in the desert
The truest love known in my heart
My living goddess
For you, my last blood I'll gladly sacrifice.
