Who is mother? ? Part 1

Who is mother? ?
The most beautiful blessing
Gifted by the God
On the sky,
The brightest star
Having a heart
Softer than cotton
With lots of love and care
Flowing like a river
Castle of forgiveness
Minaret of happiness
Knows just to give and share

Who is mother? ?
The one who bears
Pain for her child
For her child,
Ready to face
The game of death
The one who knows
What her child needs
And what doesn't
The one who brings
Everything for her child
Not thinking about herself even

Who is mother? ?
The elegance of the house
The illumination of the Moon
In a dark night
The enchantment and refreshment
A model of sacrifice
A way to paradise

Who is mother? ?
The one who cries
When her child cries
The one who smiles
When her child smiles
The one who sews
Without any price
The one who stitches
Without any demand
Whole day
Whole night
The one who can only feel
Going on our mind
The one who teaches
How to speak
The one who admonishes
How to walk
Holding the finger

To be continued.................

    No painter's brush, nor poet's pen
    In justice to her fame
    Has ever reached half high enough
    To write a mother's name.
