One of those, whom I remember!
Even if; I go on slumber.
Is my Mother?
Who is a legal member!

She was called to bar, 
In a month of ember. 
And works, in an associate 
For years now, without number.

So many works does she 
Soliciting, consultancy and also 
as a mother. 
Little time does she have on her 
Though, she clears task, from 
one to another.

Even in her car, 
She does not retire. 
But works, even harder, 
Cos that’s why she has a driver.

Mummy does things 
Even when not fit, 
But you’ll notice not, 
For her face reveals it not.

She accomplishes tasks without 
a mobile reminder. 
Cos God is her helper.
For He has always been her 
In all her affairs endeavor.

Being a mother, 
She is the best and you not 
But if you bother, 
See her and will realize I’m not a 

In her works, 
You will know how dedicated 
she is. 
And in her worship, 
You’ll know how religious she is.

She is blessed in many ways. 
Her husband alone is 
outstanding to show. 
People she helped, has many to 
And GOD knows all her lovely 

To dot the i, 
She is living library. 
And to cross the t, 
She is a living mother!

May she live long to reap. 
The fruit of her labour. 
For as for many, 
She is more than a mentor.

If all mothers 
Could be like my mother. 
No child will turn a robber! 
And No marriage will turn 

My dreams for her, 
Are pleasant to hear. 
And from ALLAH, the maker!
It shall come as favor
