Mama I Love You
I can see the tears you holding back with that smile on your face.
I can feel the uncertainty in your voice whenever you say that you are okay.
I can feel your heart sobbing whenever you are alone.
I can feel it when you struggling , try to make sure that we are okay.
I can feel your cries when you praying.
I know you just trying to make sure that I become someone great in future.
I can tell, you trying to give me everything you never got.
I know you want the best for me, just like all other parents want for their kids.
I know you dreaming of just smiling and saying " THATS MY KID ".
.. And I see you for who you are, mama.
One day I'll make you proud, I will make your dream a reality.
Am looking forward to that day when you say " MY KID MADE IT "
Am looking forward to that day when I'll sneak up on you when you praying, and there won't be no sobs.
Am looking forward to that day when I'll see you smile at the person I'll be.
Am looking forward to the day when it will be my turn to make you happy.
Mama you are my idol, my rock.
You are everything good in my life, my lifeguard.
You are a god mama.
I know I fail at times, well most of the times actually. But you never give up on me.
I know I don't appreciate you like I should, and that breaks my heart everytime I realise that.
Am yet to find someone so real like you in this word.
And I know I don't say this much, I love you mama. More than I love myself.
I live for you mama.
Forgive me if I go astray sometimes.
But I promise, amma make you proud. Keep praying for me.
MAMA I LOVE YOU.
