Today I’m not writing a poem, but I’m excited to say-
I celebrate my mum who turned 70yrs this month. Having lost my dad at an early age, she became a single mum and raised us (me and my siblings) to the best of her ability. I want celebrate her humility, her soft spoken nature, her godliness, her prayerfulness, her loveliness, perseverance, etc. As a parent, she mastered the art of been stern and sweet over the years.
Today I celebrate all the mums and dads doing an amazing job for their families, working round the clock trying to secure a future for their family.
Today, I celebrate all the single mums and single dads who are just alone in it all, trying to work out and balance everything all by themselves.
Today I celebrate parenthood, brotherhood, sisterhood.
Today I celebrate family.
Happy 70th Birthday My Dear Mother.
Below are two poems I’ve previously written in honour of my Mum.
