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.
