Today is mothers’ day and I want to wish the best mum in the world happy mothers’ day!!!!!!!!!!
Who fed me from her gentle breast?
And hushed me in her arms to rest
And on my cheeks sweet kisses prest?
When sleep forsook my open eyes
Who was it sung me sweet hushaby
And rocked me that I should not cry?
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed
And tears of sweet affection shed?
When pains and sickness made me cry
Who gazed upon my heavy eyes?
And wept for tears that I should die?
Who drest my doll in clothes so gay
And taught me pretty how to play
And minded all that I had to say?
Who ran to help me when I fell?
And would some pretty story tell
Or kiss the place to make it well?
Who taught my infant lips to pray?
And love God’s holy book and day
And walk in wisdom’s pleasant ways?
Ah! No the thought I cannot bear
And if God please my life to spare
I hope I shall reward thy care?
When thou art feeble, old and gray
My healthy arms shall be thy stay
And I will soothe thy pains away
And when I see thee hang thy head
Twill be my turn to watch thy bed
And tears of sweet affection shed
For God who lives above the skies
Would look with vengeance in his eyes
If I should ever dare despise
Trust me I was a very stubborn kid when I was growing, I even though I was adopted and I was hopefully waiting for my real parents to come for me because I saw my mum as too strict but hey! Everything I learnt is so useful to me now. Even with my multiple wahala my mum never cursed me for one day. Mama when I hammer, I pray you are well and alive to enjoy the fruits of your labour. I love you more than I tell you I do mama!
