For the Virtues of Poetry Contest, a free verse.
|You lavished me with care when I was in your womb,
You only made me see the light of this wonderful world;
You taught me how to utter words,
You taught me how to place my footsteps;
You share my pain and happiness in each day of my life,
You soak my tears like a sponge and make them dry;
With your indomitable courage I forget my fears,
I miss your presence when you are away;
Without you my world is dreary and bleak.
Even when we are not near we keep thinking about each other,
Just because your love for me is too strong,
And I feel that your soul is embedded in mine.
