Mother -By- Godwin Henry Osaigbovo Pa Shakespeare

 

‘Better lose the saddle than the horse’.
Every mother’s voice echo these 7 words
To her child, not just out of love,
Not entirely for love but for joy.
The joy of motherhood.

This life will be hard (they say)  
Nwa m, ma ọ ga-adịrị gị mma
She assures her young child.
n’ihi na ọ bụrụ na nwatakịrị adịghị
Enwe ọganihu ọ nọ n’aka nne
The pains of motherhood.

A mother is a child’s guide through life.
Come, follow me, close your eyes
Think of the rose, and let us go;
She said to her child at birth.
The duty of motherhood.

Nne enweghị ọnụ ahịa

A woman who has children, does not die.
She is a mother, in life and beyond.
Her name forever in the hearts of her children
And their children.
Her presence felt through memories when she’s gone.

Every child will grow up,
Age and fade off with time.
This life cycle of ours is like a river,
It goes and comes.
But a mother’s milk is priceless.
