My Mother

My Mother

Oh Mother! Oh Mother!
Your lullaby songs wake me up when I'm in delicate shape That comforts me; my only escape 
Spending every early morning hours to make both ends meet Shattered eyes veil the tears of sweet. 

Oh Mother! Oh Mother!
It's been decade since I last heard your song 
Drinking tuba with peers and music loud all night long 
Give me back my childhood again 
I feel weary; no love like your love can ease the pain.

Oh Mother! Oh Mother!
You're my shelter from life's great storm 
I find solace in this cosmos that you transform 
From you I learned how to pray
And love the Holy Bible every day.
I know those prayers would save my soul 
Just in case I turn damn and fool 
The warmth and affection you give to everyone 
Are the foundation of the woman I become. 

Happy Mothers day to all Mothers in the world.

Awww...You make me think of my mother and how much she has really influenced me being a mother.   I respect her for her patience and love....as you express about your own mother the impact she has had on you.  Happy Mother's Day!  I hope you feel the warmth you deserve to feel on this special day in honor of all mothers. I really enjoyed the beauty of getting a glimpse of your own mother's influence on you.   Love n Hugs...xo ;)

Oh! Sorry for the late reply.... I hope you had a fabulous Mothers day celebration...
yes, my mom has had a strong influence on me.. we are so much alike ( in positive ways LOL); the resilience,  perseverance, discipline, hard word. I suppose she passed the strength on me. She raised us 5 singlehandedly. 
Thanks for your support and comments.
