She stood up, into the kitchen
my eyes glanced, how could you!
when it’s 103?
In soft tone, she murmurs,
“Are you all gonna be hungry”
that same moment,
my heart dumbfounded.
How strong she is!
my mind whispered
with a sudden flick of eyes,
again, with her soft tone
“Be like me”
you are my daughter,
great ones not only
have fame and respect,
but, with core qualities
that reflects herself.
Yes mama,
The reflection you’ll see
forever in people remarks,
I said gently.
