Poem: I have a mother, do you?


I would like to submit the following poem from my 11-year old daughter, Nemora Poawai, who is the younger of twins because I think it is a lovely one. She wrote this poem on the eve of Mothers’ Day and left it on my table so I could read it when I came to work on Monday morning, and I did - Kari Poawai

I have a mother, do you?

That’s great that you have one too

I would have no other than to have her as a mother

We talk to each other from day to night

She’s like a big light

That shows me the way day and night

That’s why I love her and because she cares about me.

Yes, I have a mother who is more than a star that leads me. She is my heart that pumps life to my soul.
