Mother’s Day


A day set aside each year.
We pay tribute to our mothers.
As children we need the reminder.
As adults we need to remember.

I fell, bruised my knees,
Mum made it all better.
Each and every time,
Mum was there, taking care of me.

Our roles are reversed now.
It is I who takes care of Mum now.
But I will always remember
Mum was there, taking care of me.

I am blessed with a Loving Mum.
One who nurtured my body and soul.
Who taught me good from bad.
And lovingly let me fly high.

To mothers out there,
I pray you are remembered
By your children lovingly.
As mothers, I pray you remember
Your children lovingly today.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
