My Goddess

written by: Rubab Abdullah


Boundless love and gratitude
I have for you
With great tenderness
You carried me within you
And delivered me
To see and know
The enchanting spread of life
You are my goddess,
My dearest—my mother!

All hard work and no pay
Was your lot.
Making our home idyllic was your concern
How can we thank you for your sacrifices?
Throughout your life you have made
O, dear mother.

When things go wrong
And time casts its shadow
You become one with me
Your unending prayers
Stand in the way of every evil force
You are my goddess, my mother!
