On your bosom I found comfort and peace...

On your bosom I found comfort and peace…

Mine heart fills with pleasure...

Mine heart fills with pleasure…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mine heart fills with pleasure
Oh depth of love can there be
Gift supreme words cannot measure
Your unwavering love for me

Love than pain itself made strong
Gave my first abode without a frown
Love so divine I never can wrong
So deep no depth can drown

Through her my first words I formed
My toothless grin your heart ever so joyful
Your teary smile as your ears heard
On my infant lips your name though mouthful

Once at my first step my legs took a miss
Your eyes bade me to rise each time I fell
My bruised knees your soft lips kiss
My will to rise making your heart swell

When by thoughtless words and loveless act
Your gentle heart my action pierced
For this deed myself I despised
To never hurt you so, I made a pact

Soon by life’s fang I got bitten
My strength failed, my will to live decreased
Your eyes baring more pain than I smitten
On your bosom I found comfort and peace

When old age dug in your cheeks
And back that bore me through worry curved
I vow I’ll forever be your arms and legs
Oh sweet mother, you are adorned

For you Mum – Your unwavering love and strength, give me the courage to keep fighting. You are the best.
And for all mothers, may you reap the fruit of your labour.
Lots of love
