I am inspired to pen this poem for my mother who has gone through a lot and suffered much in life to bring up my sibling and I. Now that I am also a mother, I understand more deeply a mother’s selfless and dedicated love.
Tribute to Mum
You toiled endlessly for me when I was little,
Not a word of blame, you gave me your all.
You were tough in your discipline,
But you have never stinged on your love.
Life was hard on you,
But you never once gave up and ran.
You stood and fought every battle,
You gave me the best you could.
Now in your twilight years,
You have lost your fighting spirit.
You always say you are tired,
Perhaps from all the years of toil.
Mummy, I really love you,
More than you will ever know.
May God bless you abundantly,
With good health and happiness always.
