Nigerian Wedding: To My Mother On My Wedding Day
There are no words made to say thank you
to someone who gave her heart away.
Someone I’m proud to call my Mother
who’s guided me all along life’s way.
I’ve kept your words hidden in my heart
so I can live life the way you taught me.
A life filled with grace, honor and love
to be everything I was meant to be.
I know I’m the most blessed bride on earth.
I’ll be thinking of memories only you and I know
memories of a little girl and her Mother.
A Mother the whole world would love for its own.
I can never repay you
but I want to be just like you are……
you’ll be the jewels in my crown tonight,
my Mother, my friend, my heart.
