MY MOTHER (POEM)

Tags:

I KNEW YOUR EYES WHEN I WAS YOUNG
LISTENED TO YOUR VOICE AND FELT YOUR TOUCH
WHEN I WAS IN YOUR WOMB
I GOT MY FIRST KISS FROM YOU
YOU ENCOURAGED ME TO WALK AND RUN WHEN I COULDNT
YOU POURED ALL YOUR LOVE ON ME.
YOU WHERE MY WORLD MAMA

YOU TOOK CARE OF ME BY WORKING HARD
YOU KNEW WHEN I NEEDED SHOES AND CLOTHES
YOU MADE SURE I ATE AND WENT TO SCHOOL
YOUR ENCOURAGEMENTS MADE ME DO GOOD IN EVERY GRADE
YOU WHERE MY WORLD MAMA

THANK YOU MAMA FOR TAUGHTING ME TO WORK HARD IN LIFE
TO BE A GOOD MOTHER
THANK YOU MAMA FOR ALL YOUR LABOR
TODAY PEOPLE SEE A RESPECTED SOMEBODY
ALL BECAUSE OF YOU
YOU WHERE ,YOU ARE AND YOU WIIL REMAIN MY WORLD
