This is a Verse

This is a Verse

This is a verse for a woman like no other

Dedicated to my one and only mother

None can take her place, before or after

For all her smiles, for all her laughter,

For all the tears and pain that she suffers

For all the grief from me, my sisters and brothers

She carried us in weakness upon weakness and loved us

Weaned us and soothed us when hunger crushed us

Tried to make sure no harm ever touched us

Made us safe in the bed in which she tucked us

Yet I never show my mother the same concern

I came from her womb but to Him I shall return

I shall see one day what good I have earned

Every effort should be made, no stone left unturned

To treat her kindly for the lessons that I’ve learned

At her kind and gentle hands, so soft yet so strong

By her blessed feet is where I belong

Though days, nights and weeks go on

That was a verse for a woman like no other

Dedicated to my one and only mother

This is a verse for my one and only father…
