And there is a goddess on earth by whom I’m amazed.
They say she’s human, but I say she’s divine
She hath no crown, she hath no throne,
She is perfect even in her imperfectness
If I had the means, I would build a thousand Castles for you;
Each one for all the sleepless nights you have had because of me
Each one for the times you’ve gone hungry so I can eat
Each one for all the tears you shed for me
But even the thousand Castles are not enough.
How can I repay you for all you’ve given me?
Or the things you are still doing?
Or the ones you will still do?
I cannot promise never to make you cry again, DearMother
I cannot promise to be always good
But one thing I promise you, Mum
One day, I’ll make you proud.
For My Loving Mother, on her birthday. And to
every mother who has suffered for her child.
