Ma

A past, I barely know of;
A struggle, you seldom speak of;
And emotions, that are hidden-
Make up this woman, full of love for her children.
This woman who speaks, not of the past, only of the present,
And, known for the mental and emotional strength she possesses.
This is the woman I get to call “Ma”.

The definition of the “strength of a woman ”

Attains a lot more meaning when it comes to you.

The unknown events before my birth,

And those after it,

Have made you the woman you are.

And, more than anything else,

It makes me aspire to be half the woman you are.
Thank you, and I love you-

Are seldom uttered.

However, the magnitude of my appreciation for you,

And, the perpetuity of the love I have,

Exceed anything that I could ever express.

And, I want you to know-

The “goodnights” and the “good mornings”,

Hold all the unspoken words,

That seem too awkward to be said aloud.
A past, I barely know of;

A struggle, you seldom speak of;

And emotions, that are hidden-

Make up this woman, full of love for her children.

This woman who speaks, not of the past, only of the present,

And, known for the mental and emotional strength she possesses.

This is the woman I get to call “Ma”.
The best has been given to us,

And, failing to give the appreciation it calls for,

We forget to say Thank You.

A life without her, is unimaginable.

A life with her, is everything that we could ever need.

Blessed, indeed, we are to have her as our mother.
