Your love is like an island
In a lifeless ocean,
Made of deep devotion and sacrifice.
My first country l lived in
In you l was created
And for me you were created.
You are charming
your food is enchanting
but your love is everlasting.
Strong as a lion ,
fearless as lioness
pure as a dove.
So many stars in the sky but yours shines brighter
sometimes l ask myself where l would be today without your motherly advice ultimate sacrifices
All my sorrows washed away like make up on a widow’s face because of your presence
You turned me into sunshine,
Today where ever l go
My light shines bright
You encouraged me to dream
Fostering and nurturing the Seeds of ubuntu in me
l am because you are.
In my battles
You are my soldier
You showed me light
When l thought that l wouldn’t make it
You gave me strength and courage
In hopelessness you showed me a ray of hope
How to dance in the storm you taught me
I have crossed so many bridges of life
Because of you
You always give me a reason To:
Your sweet voice brings happiness in my life
Your eyes brighten my days
Words aren’t enough to say thank you mom
