Happy Mothers' Day!


Mothers

By Nkem Ekeopara



Mothers are like morning flowers
The refreshing scents around us
The life we live and the true love we know
They are all we ever cared to own.

How kind our Creator is
In giving us these tendril stakes
From cradle and crawling days
Through change and challenging periods.

How sweet it feels
And pleasing it is
To own these blooming bouquets
Of daisies and daffodils

How lucky we are
And re-assuring it is
To own these bonding bunch
Of lilies and roses.

How blessed we are
And complete life has been
To own these caring bundles
Of beauties and brains.

How saddening it could be
When heaven suddenly calls.
How painful it remains
Till we take the call ourselves.

Mothers are like morning flowers
The refreshing scents around us
The life we live and the true love we know
They are all we ever cared to own.
