How sweet and loving you are,
patience and happiness you bring
woman, mother that you are,
how full of you I am,
for you bring such joy
to my little self.
It didn’t matter the many times
my face hit the floor,
you were there to raise me up
and I carry you in my heart
my dear mother.
You, who took the bread from your plate
and let me have it. I can’t forget
the tears I shed whilst you held me,
I am stronger in your arms,
unbreakable in your love.
Strong and all mighty, like God
you watched over my fragile steps,
now, mother, its my turn to watch over you.
You who watched over my dreams
and fed them, I love you so.
You who wanted me to be the best,
for in your eyes, I always am.
