You gave me love
Sympathy
Patience
Kindness
I gave you aches
Anxiety
Sorrows
Pressure

You gave me joyful days
With cheer
Happiness
Insight
But I gave you days
Of desolation
Grief
Sadness

You gave me nights
With relaxing songs
Comfortable rest
Pleasant dreams
But I gave you nights full of
Pain
Restlessness
Soreness

After all of this I hear you say
I love you
I care for you
I think about you
Dear Mother,
I don’t know what to do in return
But live life to the fullest
For you
