An accountant balancing the books,
master chef and fantastic cook.
Legacy baker of bread, plus many a treat,
the orchestrator of the family retreat.
A nurse who sutures your bruised pride,
sometimes simply put a mastermind.
Economist predicting household spend;
cleaner, washer, yet banker willing to lend.
Eloquent storyteller of tales 'old and wise',
the cartographer who maps out your life.
An advocate adjudicating to her fold,
being a teacher of morality in the home.
Mum, you are all these things to me,
Today I salute your multiplicity.
