Ode to My Young Mother

Most beautiful queen of Earth,

whose eyes reflect the joy in your womb,

a million flowers you’re worth.


Oh kind and gentle mother!

give me one hug,

later give me another.


For this day is a day of happiness,

a day neither of us will ever forget.

The day I saw your loveliness.


Your hair is the color of gold,

your eyes the color of honey.

I will love you even when time is old.


be patient during my struggles,

for you were patient when you said; “ let's make a “she”.’
