"Tears of a Longing Daughter"

in teardrops •  last year

Mabuhay Steemians!

As I grow old I realized how important it is to have a Mother by my side, especially now that I'm a mother already. I appreciate more the love and sacrifices.

I created this poem for you Nanay (Mother). I wish you are here to guide me everyday as I endeavor the jouney to motherhood.


Our photo here seems fading,
but my love for you is everlasting.

Nanay, it is so difficult to solely face this journey
but I need to be strong to make it all the way.

Everyday is a struggle.
Some would care but no one is really here.

There are nights that I'm cryin',
I'm longing for your lovin'.

I never changed, I'm still your weak daughter, yearning for your utmost care.

I know that you gave me wings so that I could fly on my own,
but still I'm here, having a hard time to fly alone.

I thought it's easy to build my own family,
but Nanay you're right, it's not an A-B-C.

You taught me things I need in order for me to survive,
but just like an air, you are very important to make me alive.

I hurt you and I deeply regret.
How could I do it to a woman who only thinks of what I deserve best?

Your gentle touch I need today,
to comfort my weary heart who has been tired lately.

Nanay, I need you, I love you, please come back and stay,
you are the only one who understand me deeply.

I miss you and I long for you Nanay, can you hug me today?


I hope you get inspired and value more your Mother!

You never know what you have lost until your mother passes on.


No she isn't gone, we are just miles apart. It's been a long time since we've been together and I really missed her.


Just keep loving her as you do and keep telling her how much you love her.


I will @trendygran, thank you.

Yay! Nanay I Love you. 😀💖
