You are above the rest
Your strength, the most dynamic
Your wisdom, the profoundest
You are my mom, unparalleled.
Singlehandedly you propelled us
To where we all are now
Beyond the abyss of poverty
And of hardship, you persevered.
You are your own person
Standing pat on your convictions
A woman hardened by privation
You shine even on your attrition.
So long Mama. May you have peaceful and smooth journey to the afterlife. I love you always.
