Poem: Dear Mother

BY: Junior Graphic

You are the queen of the family

Even if I don’t show you this all the time
I love you more and more everyday
My refuge was your body
In spite of dizziness, nausea and pain, you gave me life with love and joy
And today, I see light
All thanks to you
I am sorry I have not told you enough how much I adore and cherish you
I love you so much, dear mother
Your smile illuminates my soul
You are the vitamin of my being
You rocked me at your breast
You caressed and comforted me
You, dear mother
I give you my eternal gratitude
No language is capable of expressing
The strength, beauty and heroism of a mother
Dear mother, I love you so much.
