You embodied motherhood, parenthood and partnership
You disciplined, corrected and trained
Kept God in the center of our consciousness
Encouraged us to individually pursue the Lord.
You taught me how to be a woman of virtue
To love unconditionally and serve selflessly
The true meaning of motherhood
How to be a wife, a true help-meet to her husband.
You showed what it meant to love the Lord
Practically in service and in everyday life
You pushed me beyond the limits I could see
And never let me settle for less than I was worth.
You played your role though the time was short
You did all you did with all your heart and soul
Your exit, though so abrupt and sudden
Your life, though over, still speaks.
Thank you mummy for fifteen amazing years
Years of impartation and seed sowing
Rewards of which, I reap till now
I always thank God for the angel on loan
I got to call her ‘mummy’!
