Dedicated on the 13th day of May, 2018 to all virtuous mothers in the world and specially to those whose memories are legendary????

You don’t know the things we go through to see our children happy
You don’t know the tears we hide to see them laughing
Oh, you cannot understand the pain we chide to see them powerful

No, you can’t fathom the sacrifices we make
to see them be who they ‘can‘ be.

We may be poor, but for our children we are ever rich
We may be weak, but for our children, we are always strong
We may be sick, but for our children we are ever fit.

When it comes to our kids, we can fight life itself
Don’t pity us when we fail to continue because death slipped in.
Love us because we did all we could.

Mama, you are a gem that I love.
A rare jewel found in nowhere else but you.
May our mothers ever live long to see us celebrate them more????!!!
