Thanks, Mom

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

So just make her happy and give her a hat

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

Thanks mom
