My Mother

Tall, fair, beautiful,
Wise and thoughtful too
All qualities she's endowed with
Always gives me peace

Oh! mother dear
How much I love you so
For you stuck with my twin and I
Through thick and thin

Like a mother hen
We're safe in your care
Busy or free
She's there for me

Your eyes like that of a gem
Your lips bring forth
Words of advice
As I scale through life

After years of practice
Your hands stir up dishes
Dutifully around the kitchen
That tastes so amazing

Your heart so pure
And full of love
That's worth more than gold
Your smile spreads happiness
That can't be explained

I do have more to say
But I don't have all day
A mothers love is endless
As the sun rises and sets

Last few words: 
This is an emotional poem straight from the heart. It tells a true story about a mother's unending, unconditional love towards her family and children. It's also about the advice and moral support she inculcates in her children.

impressed with your word usage, and command of the dictionary! Culculate is a word not often used by the most astute native English speakers! Your poem certainly venerates motherhood! I am slowly becoming more aware of the thought process in translating from Nigerian to English. I commend you for an excellent poem. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Wow!! Thank you very much!!
I'm really surprised and shocked about what you said on my word usage and command of the dictionary. I honestly wasn't aware of that. I am now.

that your poem rhymed even when it didn't. I suggest that in view of your work, that you try and write some rhyme. I think it will give you an insight and good foundation for your pieces. Take your time and carefully craft a few pieces and you will see your natural rhythm blossom! ~ Geezer.

This is an interesting angle. Let me give it a try and see how it looks.

Thank you!
