For all dear Single Mothers, for Overseas Working Mothers and for those generous Hearts who have assumed the role of a mother in behalf of all far and away, overseas working Mothers:
For all the mothers of this world,
Of course I’m sure I’m one of the luckiest daughter,
Rare and most unique, wonderful, generous, intelligent,
self-less, giving and ever patient loving mother,
my own Mama!
Many nights of sleepless hours, she took care of me,
my sister and my brothers,
Years passed, her struggles, sorrows,
trials were all uphill,
yet she remained strong, courageous and brave
to have surpassed them all.
My dearest mother, the most ever great model
of patience and flexibility,
And never I ever heard any complaints
nor lamentations during any difficulty.
My dearest mother, my best model of her endless
unconditional love and forgiving heart.
All these priceless gifts of talent, wisdom,
attitude and character she has shared and given me.
For my Mama, goes a special tribute and reassurance
that the great gifts she had inculcated in me:
wholesome personality, balanced emotional, intellectual,
psychological, physical and spiritual values,
proud to pass it on to my little angels, my girls
and raise them well
as my mother has prepared me so well
in the real world I’m facing now.
For my Mama, who brought me to this world, goes my deepest love, respect and unending gratitude for what I am now today.
The Best Mama In The World
Thirty five years ago, she brought me into this world.
Hours, days, nights and years, she cared
and showered me with tender loving care.
Endless sacrifice and challenges in events:
on smooth or rough times,
She helped me through and helped me become
of who and what I am today.
Beautiful, chic, ever-patient mother I have.
Envy of many because she is smart, patient
and knows well how to stay afloat
Amidst the tidal waves of conflicts from left and right.
Strong, brave, courageous and patient heart and soul:
she passed on me!
The way to face this world at times bad or good,
harsh and cold,
Yet many times, this is the way to be,
Go on, forwards and onwards, no matter what!
“I’m here for you, loving you and my moral support
now that you’re far from our homeland
and have acquired new culture
I’m wishing, hoping, wanting and
praying the best for you in your life.”
