Today’s Daily Prompt This is Your Song.
The song Sweet Mother by Prince Nico Mbarga, is a great classic I love to listen to. In this powerful song, Prince Nico praised MOTHERS for the love and care they give to their children.
I love to relish the bond between me and my mother. Though we talk regularly on the phone, I still love to listen to this song. Mothers are supreme! Mothers are special! I call my mother ‘MAMA’. I love her with my every breath!
This POEM is for you MAMA:
Nine months in her womb
For nine months I lived in her
Mama, Omalicha, Ezigbo-Nne!
My Sweet Mother!
Your breath sustained me in your womb
Until that glorious day when I graced the world
This sweet and sinful world
Though the Umbilical-Cord was severed
The bond between us was not severed
You loved me first
When you nurtured me with love
Pure love that sparkles and glitters
It shows in your every act
In your words and thoughts for me your child.
Me, your precious daughter
You fed me with your milk of love
You groomed me with your words of wisdom
You clothed me with comfort and warmth
You guided my footsteps
Your light illuminated my path
You watched me when I was sick
And prayed God to keep me for you
Your every act of love is never in vain
Now, it’s my turn to repay your good deed
As you age gracefully
My turn to take care of you, Ezigbo-Nne
My turn to show you the love you have shown me first
I loved you yesterday
I love you today
And forever I will cherish and honour you
You my Sweet Mother
Thank you for your tenderness and absolute love
A mother’s love, so pure so gentle
A mother’s love,
A treasure and a great pleasure
PS: Omalicha, Ezigbo-Nne (Beautiful, Sweet Mother)
