So many times, I see your door locked.
I hear you singing a song of love.
I know,Mama...you are grieving.
I wish I could pick all the stars in heaven,
Put the flower in your hair....
then braid them to make you prettier.
I wanna buy you a diamond ring.
If you'll allow me,I will travel far.
To search for a man your heart deeply desires.
I will tell the wind to guide you when I'm gone.
And the moon shines above you in the night.
May the sun keeps you warmth in your coldest life.
I will tell the birds to sing in the sky.
And I assure you of happiness,
I long to see in your face.
Mama...it's been twelve years now.
Too many years have passed,
I hope you let the memories cast.
You deserve to be happy,
Too many times you'd drowned in mud.
Patiently, I know you kept your mouth shut.
But deep inside those eyes....
I can see the darkness behind.
Why Mama?Why do you have to suffer that much?
Is it because you love us,
You can sacrifice living in hell.
You don't deserve it! This is insane!
I've grown up now, Mom...
Look at the daughter you'd once cradled.
It's a high time to again pick up the pieces.
Mama...it's not yet too late.
Stand up! I'll take your hand in a bliss.
I'll send you someone to wipe away those tears.
Look at the man patiently waiting,
He is not the same guy who brought you pain.
And one thing I want you to remember...
Mama...you are loved....
From the day that I came.
