The Mother’s Kiss
The moment I saw you I fell in love with you dearest mama,
That first innocent look dawned on my birth with your smile.
Mama of mine please caress me awhile through this night,
The world is against me so to you do I flee sweet mama mine.
You protect me from the cold gale that storms hell to despair,
And you kiss all my wounds & my heartaches away.
Mama your bosom is the cradle where I learnt to love better,
My every pain is washed away in one look of your gaze.
Tender mama of mine who puts me to bed where I rest,
You stare into my sleepy eyes singing the ballad of twilight.
Womanhood has no equal in intrinsic love most special,
Mama of my world don’t ever leave me alone in the void.
Kiss me on my cheek gentle flower in bloom so fragrant,
Sing me to sleep in cradle-like glee placing palm upon me.
I’ll never leave your side & I will always be with you,
My love will not fade with the tide but will pierce the heart.
Mama dearest kiss my forehead & let me sleep in your arms,
The wolves too many surround but in your safety I’m secure.
Darling of my heart I would cry in fear when you’re not there,
I’ll cling to your apron string for many a day to be counted.
For no love is purer than the heart of a mama & child,
So kiss my eyes tenderly dear lovely mama of mine own.
I know many of them who have no mama’s with them to own,
They wander so aimlessly & drawn in the tide so high.
I empathize with them for who can compare with divinity,
I thank the white star who blessed me in your embrace──dear sweet mama of my own.
