Last Thursday I had to run an errand given by mom
After cleaning I went to have some fun
I got ready and something comfy I wore
I forgot my earrings and started my walking you know.

I saw pretty ladies with flowy long dresses
Which showed their nice lovely curves
Since the mask is on couldn't see the faces
I'm certain they have beautiful faces.

If I was an artist I could have painted what I had seen
Walking out door sometimes refresh my memory
It felt a little crowded busy with their own task
All I did was have a good look and walk.

I have always admired missionaries
They have such courage, compassion and empathy
Even if I see someone is sick and in pain
I don't know what to do, should I ask the name?


I don't operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit
Gift of knowledge or in power of healing
So all I do is say a prayer deeply within
Ask Papa God to bring relief and healing.

Whenever I see elderly ladies cleaning the road
The hardwork that they do just to earn and keep order
Even if they are sick working in the hot sun
I admire them for their courage and will power to have an income.


These women I don't know what their life story is
Sometimes I wanted just to speak and learn their stories
Being shy and timid makes me face the difficulty
But seeing them make me appreciate my mom more you see.

My mom is a hard working lady who doesn't share her difficulties
She often make sure that we are well provided with her abilities
I always wished I was at least half of who and what she is
Maybe then I could be a support and help her like she is.
