the moment I was in your tummy,
You have pampered me silly….
Thank you, Mama…
I love you ,
wherever you are…..
Millions smiles have glowed
Millions tears have flowed
Millions ounces of strength
Millions follicles have length
Millions words of knowledge
Million times I’ve taken advantage
But not a single anger is showed.
You decorate my world with unconditional love
You spark my life with your passion
You create wondrous possibilities
That often make no sense of realities
You taught me to give,I end up being received
Thank you Mama for the wonderful gifts
They open and free up my mind
but mainly they taught me to live..
You give me freedom for any destinations
That enhance my life in every senses
You guide my life with your lamp
I am glad that you are kind
Greatly thankful that you are mine
I wouldn’t be who I am
If not for whom you are
P.s: Oopss..I got carried away…its supposed to be 3-4 sentences only but hehe…
