For Mother’s Day

You underwent the carry and birth

to shed some hope upon the earth

through absolute sacrifice of self

I prospered the maternal wealth

of love that comes with ultimate devotion

regardless of mood, attitude or emotion

freely giving the gift of choice

and allowing me to have my own voice

you bravely faced the blazing flames

to let me carry the family name

though sometimes straying from the path

you never reigned with fear or wrath

and those seeds you planted in my youth

grew into a faith in a familial truth

that as guidance goes, there was no other

that could ever compare to the love of my mother
