My dearest mother.

 

Mama

The womb
The solace
The comfort
The soft warm embrace
Where we return for comfort
 
The baby knows to cry into the mother’s shoulders
We cradle back to home
Retreat back to base
The home, the heartbeat, is mother
 
Mother I pray for you
Mother I miss you
Mother I cry for you
 
In the depths of my despair
I seek your love
I look for your smile
I yearn for your voice
Your presence means everything is allright
 
Mama may you live long
Mama may God guard you
Mama may your smile always be there
Mama may your blessing come abundantly
