Mama, you are no longer with us

But memories of you are a must

With your single parent skill

You demonstrated the maternal will{{more}}

Nurturing two little boys in the face of adversity

No easy task also facing up to strong enmity

You sacrificed for your little boys

Oh how I remembered those Christmas toys

In reflection my admiration rivets on your fortitude

Here in solitude I am convinced that you had the right attitude

Stress, frustration and immortality you defied

Opting for fervent Christian prayer surely this could be verified

Your sons you provided with a valuable education

This we can assert to every nation

Your blessed love we can share to a new generation

Thanks for the Bible stories which provided us with real life inspiration

My Mama, my dear mother you were the epitome of humility

Now and forever I’ll always salute your chastity and thank God you held your dignity

In a society marred by immorality

I still hear the echoes of your spirit chiding me whenever I go wrong

And exhorting me to focus and be strong

Right now in my heart there is a song of hope

And oh how it is helping me to cope

My mama’s reassuring smile says “Pat it is not the end”

From childhood through manhood

My mama was by best friend
