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!
