It began with a kiss of love
graduated to nine months of
mixed feelings which ended
in hours of horrible pains and
In the sight of your babe came a
sincere smile of success.
You didn't know how strong you
No shock absorber could have been better.
You stayed strong like a giant Iroko tree
in the midst of turbulent winds of life
You are my hero mama.
You patiently carried on the tedious
job of nursing regardless of burdens
Denied yourself comfort to make me happy.
Your baby I will always be.
Mummy you are sweet, tender
You are indeed a blissful bridge to the paradise
