My daughter, my sweetheart, wrote this poem to me and I thought to share it with you… Enjoy.
Being born is not something to share
In fact it is something to bear
What if you had to take care of the baby all day long?
Your husband doesn’t care and is in Hong Kong
Your mother sometimes doesn’t bear you anymore
And she always feels sour and sore
Out of how mad she is
That her husband doesn’t want to admit that the baby is also his
The job is hard
So just let your mother sit in the yard
And just leave her alone
Don’t talk to her or she’ll bite you to the bone
Every mother could be like that
Only to tell her that
You’re the best mother I could ever have
Be happy and laugh
To know you have a great mother
