I need you
To come stay
To help me manage my home
As I go away.
A new chance
A new horizon I seek
Will u support my decision
Will you be here for me?
With bated breath
For the whys, the how’s, the when’s and maybe
She had to come so far from her home
She had to stay here for a month or three
“So what should I bring?”
Was the first thing I heard
I thought I had misunderstood
“Pickles or curry paste, chutney or mayonnaise?”
“Oh mum” I said “Thank you, thank you!”
And here she is with me today
Step for step matched together
I go for my class everyday
While the house runs silently on her steady shoulders
She might look frail and old and grey
But when she is put to the test
A lioness she can turn into
When it comes to protecting her cubs
She is the best!
The kids are ecstatic to have their grandma
The husband is grinning wide too
I am so fortunate to have such a mum-in-law
I had one mother
Now I have two!
