MOTHER, YOU ALWAYS WERE

I didn’t know who I was,

May be a broken star,

Wanting to shine.

May be a broken winged bird

Wanting to fly.

May be a leafless tree

Willing of green.

May be a broken heart

Looking for love.

The first time you held

I knew you were right.

In all my darkness

You were the light.

Whenever I cried,

You were the strength to fight.

Whenever I felt down

You reminded me of my height.

Whenever I lost power

You made a hope’s tower.

I said, “Let it go.”

You never said, “Then do.”

I said, “I can’t see light,”

You said, “But still fight.”

I knew that I would lose.

You asked, “Which path did you choose?”

Then what ever was my answer,

You said whichever I found was better.

In rain you were my umbrella,

In cold you were my coat,

In heat you were my hat,

In storm you were my shade,

In sorrow you were my strength,

In life you were my friend.

As I passed through different weather,

You always stayed my mother.
