I will never be the same: The impact of a selfless mother

  I remember the gifts you extended to total strangers The food you made us set aside for anyone who would come asking How house maids became sisters and guys who just came for job opportunities became brothers I remember the displaced families of 30 men, women and children With whom we equally share our food and house when war raged on the country side I remember when you chose to put us in private schools Depriving yourself of fun, fancy clothes and shoes How every day you went to work and came right back home to be with us I have seen your tears, and your generosity, not only to us, but for total strangers Even though I should be the one calling and texting you, you beat me to it every day Thank you – I will never be the same. You’ve taught me what it really means to be selfless Happy Mother’s Day Mom! With much love – Walter
