To Mother Jacqueline

My dear and lovely Mother
Very strong and never tired
For us you could stand the fire
To make us be more than others. Forever pretty Jacqueline
I want you to know, beside all
I promise not to ever fall
Below what you drawed, yes that line. Yes! Your Mother named you Tchieudji
Literally means visitor
No! A gift from the Creator
Our education was a gift. I know, whatever I've become
Is because of you my Mother
Taught me to be above others
And care every time I come home. Whatever I may do, ever
You remain, yes, my only love
The only reason why I move
And I thank you forever.
