Mama were the first words that came from my mouth
Your gentle eyes ushered me to mother earth
you held me close to your chest
provided me with warmth and deep comfort
I liked your breath that made me feel part of you
each time you raised me up, 
wanted me to see my new world

It was fun changing my diapers
no wonder I liked doing it every minute
everyday you and I went to the park
just next to the blue pond
you pointed at some geese wading;
a mother and its goslings
that had found comfort just like us
a gift of mother nature

sometimes I cried and punched you
sometimes I screamed when I was angry
you never gave a damn but smiled back
you called me a genius when the rest thought otherwise
I was number one on your list
even though I didn't make it to the top in class
throughout my life you have been a source of motivation
the only port in a storm

you won't get to read this but,
as long as the world gets to know
that my mum is  a super mum
my heart rejoices for having you
for having experienced the best of love
yet nothing outdoes a mother's love
love that lasts for all eternity
love you mom
