Utter patience 
mammoth courage 
are worth to me 
more than the 
garnet bracelet 
as a souvenir 
SHE gifted me 
Evergreen love 
embedded in 
motherly warmth 
deeper than the deepest 
abyss on earth 
merges with 
her morals 
still emits fragrance 
through me to my kids 
Skills and wisdom 
milk of humanity 
SHE painted in my heart 
made me a "queen" 
to be loved by a man 
SHE led me to be 
A loving mother 
Not only for my kids 
To for  kids who need 
a mother too.
