Mother do you know I love you

do you remember the day u first felt me move?
I danced to the weird music you liked so much
back in the days where u used to cover yourself so I can be warm

your hand brushed me now and then with tenderness… 
but it was ticklish to me
I know u could hear me laughing 
cause I heard you laugh and felt u smile

then I met you face to face for the 1st time
I cried and cried but you kept on smiling
you held me with tenderness 
and never let me go till this day

I'm older now… looking back on the years
not a single one have you ever left my side
I gave you headache and heartache
but you never hated me

I love you mother… don’t be so shocked
I always loved you but failed to say it
no one has loved me better
your love kept me strong

I'm now a parent myself, I know how you felt
when the world hurt me and you hurt too
I was always strong but you were stronger
these tears flow when I think of you

when I think of how you hustled day in and out
so I can have food, warmth and a roof
how can I thank you? how do I say it better?
Mother I love you

hush now I'm not going anywhere
just letting you know of this love in me
the one you built and nourished
so you can be proud, like I am
