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.
