When we grew up…
You poured yourself to us,
You gave yourself to us,
until nothing left.
Because of you,
I have the courage to say freely my thought about things that now some may hold at the back still.
I have the courage to expect a better life.
Even though at your time, you could never have them nor have the courage to dream on.
But you had sown the seeds in us to grow.
You walked your talk,
you set an example for us.
You nurtured us,
you nourished us,
we were full of love.
Despite all the imperfections,
that happened to all of us,
you did always do for us,
sincerely, willingly, joyfully and cheerfully…in any seasons.
In good times and in bad times,
in health and in sick.
You’re our anchor, you’re our rock.
Now we’ve grown up, and you’ve grown old gracefully…
subtly but surely.
You are still smiling joyfully and cheerfully to life.
I hope I can follow your example, Mom.
Dear Lord, please meet my mother’s every need.
