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 together '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 you. I will forget not, Mother.
