Opinion: A Mother’s Day poem

In honour of the mothers who gave up their right to be a mother so that another woman could be a mother.

Happy Mother's Day, all.

In honour of the mothers who gave up their right to be a mother so that another woman could be a mother: 

Mom, come meet my mother

Mom, come meet my mother: the person who allowed us — you and dad and me — to become a family.

My mother who handed me, the small bundle, to you so that you could take care of me

And yes mother, mom did take good care of me

We all thank you mother, for the wonderful life you allowed us to have and now we will take care of you

You will no longer fall asleep on a tear-drenched pillow on my birthday

You will no longer be alone on holidays

You will be part of our family
