Amazing Mother’s Struggles
Mother, you embody love.
You define noble nourishment of a child.
You bestow a child with amazing queenly care.
Mother, you saw beyond what l was,
To what l could be in this competitive world.
You helped me build my destiny and chart out my way.
You struggled in London with a high measure of selflessness.
For all the wonderful sacrifices no countless words are enough honour.
May our Creator’s love continue to reign and radiate through your life.
