We Thank You

Dear Mum,

You’ve suffered and sacrificed a lot for our sake,

Right from birth you’ve always been there for us,

Our happiness is your happiness,

We thank you.


You taught us how to walk and never gave up on us when missed the steps,

Struggled to hold us before we fell down,

It wasn’t easy but you saw us through,

We thank you.


Today, we are going to school,

You Woke up early to prepare us,

Helped us cross the road and taught us the basics for doing so,

We thank you.


We do not have much to give you right now,

The least we can do is to realize the dreams you had for us,

May the Lord almighty keep you as strong as a fiddle till that time,

We thank you.
