There is only one person, throughout all your life,
Who brings peace and comfort to the darkest of nights,
Who sends hope and love with every look of her eyes,
Whose patience is limitless, like the stars in the sky.
A mother gives life, and the giving never ends,
All needs of herself she so easily suspends,
She delights in your joy, mourns with you in sorrow,
Keeps you in her heart for a thousand tomorrows.
Dear mother so lucky am I to have you,
May I never forget only your love is true.
