You work every hour, all day and night,
With love in your heart everyday you fight.
You hide your tears under the smile in your face,
You take me to your arms with your ever loving grace.
You give me everything, big or small,
But you bury your wishes under a heap so tall.
You never left me alone, when my body felt weak,
Your hands on my head would always do the trick.
And my lady you can do everything in this world,
You can straighten things up however it is curled.
From a guide to a friend, everything you can be,
Your grip is the best, I never want to be free.
So mumma never go, please stay with me,
Life without you will be without any glee.
You had faced many odds while making me a human,
With you in my life, my life is a heaven.
Sorry for hurting with my loud hitting anger,
But your love for me always speaks louder.
Your place in my heart can take no other,
Believe me I know, what it takes to be a mother.
