My mother is a very special woman, to me and countless others. She has been a pastor’s wife, a mother of four and grandmother to numerous children, a coworker, a supervisor, a friend, a sister, a daughter, and an aunt. Many know her as Merl. Those who really know her call her Ester Marie. But my favorite name for this special lady is Mama.
Esther Marie… My Mama
My Mama is my 1st best friend
Our love will endure till the end.
She demonstrated to me the kind of love
Reminiscent of the kind from above.
She shared her body with me for 9 months.
And never complained about it once.
She loved me before she even saw my face.
No one will ever take her place.
No matter how tired she continues to do
The things necessary to see her family through.
When you’re sick, she’s a doctor to get you in a better mood,
And when you’re hungry, ain’t nothing like my Mama’s food.
She is the epitome of a great woman that I try to emulate
Her kindness is beyond measure, there’s no debate.
Her alluring beauty spans the course of time.
With genes like that, I’m so glad she’s mine.
Thank you for this moment to highlight one so deserving.
To imagine my life without her is just unnerving.
I will always honor my Mom, my Mama, my best girlfriend.
And I honor and cherish her forever, because our love never ends.
