Moi Irreplacable Momma...


You! Who refused d comfort of sitting despite the labour pain but withstood your stand just to give me the perfect shape.You! Who proudly bore the mark of my bite as your baby's teething growth.You! Who tearfully nursed my fever when jaundice gave a call.I say You! Whom without, I never would have been!
Yes You! Moi Irreplacable Momma!

You! Who whistled happily while ironing my petite pinafore.You! Who joyfully spent your last dime just to make my first basket full.You! Whose chest was bursting with pride when I received my first award.I mean You! who framed my first letters in gilt!
Yes You! Moi Irreplacable Momma!

You! Who braided my hair and stitched my dress.You! Who washed my bruise and plastered my cut.You! Who soothed my fears and dried my tears.I repeat You! Who was there when no one else was!
Yes You! Moi Irreplacable Momma!

You! Who guided me through the journey to adulthood.You! Who loved me through my rebel teenage days.You! Who I couldn't have come this far without.And so I declare You! My jewel of inestimable value!
Yes You! Moi Irreplacable Momma!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
