Oh Mother

by A.M. Moodley

She has black berry hair,
Her lovely white smiles,
Her eyes full of care,
Millions of stars going on for miles.

As beautiful as one without a tear,
A touch from her soft and delicate hands,
Her heart was pierced by seven spears,
Makes joy and bliss run the lands.

She is my holy mother in heaven,
She is a polite and gentil young woman,
She has helped and cheered me whenever I was beaten,
A good, smart, and caring young woman.

She helps me be confident, not shy,
She’s brought to my life joy and bliss,
All I am telling you is not a lie,
So now, I must say this.

“Oh Mother, you are so kind,
That your heart is a never-ending river,
So, caring for love you are the perfect bind,
That you are such a joyful giver.”
