Blessings of Mum's Life


Solomon Machardson

Before you gave birth to me,

You carried me in your womb;

After you gave birth to me

You carried me in your arms.

Your person filled me with awe,

Your love for me knew no bounds,

Your death broke my heart with grief

And your memory sustains me with pride.

Across the immeasurable gulf

Of the loneliness of the tomb,

Your life blood flows in my veins

And your love weighs in my heart.

The gorgeous memory

Of the wavering smile

That lingered on your lips

Is indelibly stored in my heart.

My night has become a worship:

I sit face to face with your memory

And count the blessings of your life

In silent and overflowing leisure.
