She’s the pillar of strength at home,
The keystone of the arch she is,
Take her away, roof and wall,
Would fall to utter ruins instantly.
She’s the fire upon the hearth,
She’s the light of the Sun,
She’s the heat that warms the earth,
Without whom it would have been
Colder than stone.
Behold her the children find warmth,
She’s the light of their love alive,
Without her life would be null,
Nor anything precious would thrive.
She’s the wall against all danger,
The door against wind and snow,
She’s the gentle breeze and gale,
Creating a heaven on Earth.
She’s the angel on Earth,
Let’s celebrate her existence today
And for days to come.
