Nightly loosing sleep when you screamed
Yet the next day when you smiled, she beamed
Watching you proudly as you grew
Patiently retrieving objects you threw
Many times went hungry while you had enough
'cause most of the times things were rough

Sacrificed and sent you to school
Even though sometimes you acted like a fool
Watching over you when you were sick
Not believing others who thought it was a trick
Instinctively guiding you to be right
To restrain yourself and not getting into a fight

Worried when you were out late
Not knowing that you were with your date
Defended you in the face of trouble
Also fathering you, acting as double
Taken for granted on mothers' days
Yet, caring enough to mention you when she prays
