For how long would you go on an empty stomach for my sake?
How long will you borrow money in silence just to keep me happy?
When would you decide to also do things for yourself for once?
After 9 months in your stomach
After two years in your arms
And forever in your heart without charging anything.
Your love and selflessness are no different from those of God.
God can’t be everywhere, so he made you for me.
I saw your sacrifices
I saw you in the same clothes for more than 5 years
I saw you holding the same bag whiles growing up
You hardly make time to keep yourself
Oh Mama, what a mysterious being
I saw your secret tears that turned in prayers
I saw your fears that turned in faith
You have been my backbone.
How can I repay you?
How can I thank you?
You don’t mean the world to me
You are my world
Indeed, I haven’t seen God
But there wouldn’t be a need for me to do so
Because I have seen you
I don’t need a day to celebrate
But you are everything my heart yearns for
Even when death takes you away
Your footsteps of kindness and love will stay with me forever.
You will die, but you will live again in my heart
I love you mom
