Fortune follows those who remember their parents – especially mothers.
In the first three years of your life
You were so attached to me
We were so fond of ourselves.
Hardly will you spend five minutes elsewhere
Without coming to me
You can never sleep all alone,
Until you see me beside you.
You have even taken the place of my husband
Whenever I go to work
I discovered your loneliness
Only when I came back from work
To see you waiting at the gate
Now that you are of age,
You were so strange to me
Like an apple on the soil of Africa
I hardly see you once in a year
I thought you were my best friend
I never knew you were my breast’s friend.
DEDICATED TO ALL THE MOTHERS IN THE TERRITORY OF THE WORLD (Mothers’ Day was March 26).
Happy Mothers’ Day in arrears!
