Dear Mumma

The tears of joy
That washed your eyes
As you cradled me
For the very first time
All those nights
When you stayed up late
To make sure I soundly slept
The nights before my exams
Or the ones when I was ill
Those times
When you stood by me
As I shivered with loneliness
You cuddled me with love
As my muted cries
Echoed throughout the night
You are my strength
My Rock of Gibraltar
In your arms
Is where I find happiness
And that’s where lies peace
