BY NEMORA POAWAI
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.
