know, there is nothing I would not do for you. Your strength and resilience are silent examples, making me a miniature of you.
who says ‘Super’ has to be a man when the ‘S’ is written on your chest?I know that the chain that adorns the neck sometimes tickles the breast.
I do not mind your spells as I have come to realize that they are preparations for the future but do you also know that sometimes, letting go is the best? Never mind our quarrels; do not heed our spars. We make up every other minute, sticking together like roads and tar.
Fountain of mercy!
That selfless daughter of the Most High.
Champion of widows and orphans!
I makwa n’ibu Ezinne nne?
Aka ahu jikwa aku nke ya.
Your milk has nourished nations.
Love wells forth from my breasts today; drowning your many motherly faults.
For who is a mother but a bundle of sometimes-annoying, sometimes-understanding but always loving being?
Grow old in grace.
Stand tall through life’s race,
Should your gift be shoes or lace?
Anything to see the smile on your face.
Events planner extraordinaire, goddess of the vase.
Wishing you long healthy years, according to God’s pace.
