Just wrote this short poem, which i dedicate to all future mothers and particularly my teacher and friend who is about to give birth to a son very soon =)
Time… the time has come for destiny to be fulfilled
And you will make a gift soon that nothing can exceed,
A gift of life itself, an essence upon which the world is build
You’ll give birth along with selfless love; for love is all we need.
A mother you will be, an embodiment of tenderness and care
You’ll be a light and hope for your kid, a goddess to embrace;
Yet for the trials that might await ahead, you must yourself prepare
But all the hurdles fade away, when a smile shines on child’s face.
