‘I love you more than gold’
I thank God for my ‘mother’ Who thinks about us altogether Through rain and sunshine Our time she always twine Though all the scoldings and punishments Which all led to my fulfillment I still love you my *mummy* My love for you shall never be empty To all the ‘mothers’ I give a toast From _Lagos_ to _Nigeria_ and all the coasts All your words are no empty boasts Our love for you can fill all posts I thank God for my ‘mother’ Oh why shouldn’t I love further I love you more than gold I’ll always stand for you even when old
‘No one can ever replace you’ I can’t describe in words what you mean to me
Thanks for always being there for me. No one can ever replace you, not now and the million years to come I love you Mom. Mom you will live to eat the fruits of your labour. Mom, from the time I was really Young. I realized I had someone…..who always cared, Who always protect me. Who was always there for me. No matter what, you thought me right from wrong, and pushed me to do the right thing, Even when it was hard to do. You took care of me when I was sick. And your love helped me get well.
‘There will never be anyone like Mummy Gideon’
There will never be anyone like Mummy Gideon So gentle yet strong She is so patient with me yet correct, my wrong She is always there to make me better Her care for me is second to none So many ways you show appreciation for my mum always make me feel I belong to the right place.
‘My mother has a mind of her own and that’s why I love her
My mother is a beautiful, strong and amazing woman. Any problem that comes her way, she faces it without fear. She never praises us for doing wrong things but reprimands us. She doesn’t do things because others are doing it, she has a mind of her own and that’s why I love her.
‘God should give her the strength to take care of the family’
My wishes for my mum are. Firstly, God should give her the strength to take care of the family. Secondly, she should be a good role model for us the children. Poem Roses are red blue bells are blue My mum is the best of them all sunflowers are yellow Lilly’s are pink she’s the prettiest of them all my mummy is the best of them all.
‘God bless my mother’
For months she carried me in her womb And never let me end up in a tomb God bless my mother! For years she strapped me on her back And made sure I never lack God bless my mother! To raise me up, she toiled in the rain She hurt but endured the pain God bless my mother! She raised me in the ways of God She says “Don’t tell lies, don’t shed blood” God bless my mother! For she loved me in many ways than none Who can surpass her love? No one God bless my mother!
‘My mother’s love showed me the way’
My wishes for My Mom are good health of mind and body, long life. Mother is such a simple word, But to me there’s meaning seldom heard. For everything I am today, My mother’s love showed me the way. I’ll love my mother all my days, For enriching my life in so many ways. She set me straight and then set me free, And that’s what the word “mother” means to me. Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!
