Mother is Gold - Laju Ereyitomi Oyewoli

Iya ni wura
Mother is Gold
A Treasure untold
Gifted to the Human race
To soften life’s arduous task 

Yeye ni wura
A crystal gift
Given to humanity
That the vicissitudes of life can be curtail

For truly mother is gold
An irreplaceable gem
Which shines and sparkle
In the darkest days of life

Soothing our deepest pains
Anchoring us safe through the raging winds of life
That we may glow in crystal gold

Laju Ereyitomi Oyewoli (21st century) Nigeria (now lives in Ghana)

Iya ni wura translates as Mother is gold
