My Mother My Irreplaceable

My Mother My Irreplaceable

You gave me life, the first smile I opened my little eyes to see
Your tender hands, the comfy back that put me to sleep
The epitome of selfless love and unconditional care and attention
My strength, my protector when I was vulnerable and careless
My definition of right when all choices seem to be the same
My mother, my irreplaceable.

Days of weakness , nights of sickness and cries that wouldn’t let her rest
Moment of bad choices that brought shame to bear
“You will not kill me”, she said but she would not leave me
“You will not kill yourself”, she screams but that she wouldn’t allow
A preacher that wouldn’t stop, a provider that doesn’t hold back
A light in my darkest moments, a path when all seems pert
You never gave up on me, my irreplaceable.

You taught me all I need to know and let me learn through my lows
You gave your all not because you had enough but you had my love
I can never appreciate you enough, because your life you gave
I am a living testimony to how good you’re
Never can my words express what my heart feels at your thoughts
My irreplaceable, my treasure, my mother.


My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.- Mark Twain

A mother is the truest friend we have , when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine , desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness , and cause peace to return to our hearts . – Washington Irving

Each time I look at myself and what I have become, all I say in my heart is “Mama, thank you for not giving up on me” – Unknown

Dedicated to Late Mrs. Bolajoko Olayemi Abosede.
