It's Mother's Day again. The date 12 May is so special for every one of us though on a personal view Mother's Day is everyday for me because the very special woman in my life is always in my heart every minute of the day.
My mom stays strong as ever; physically and mentally. With my late father, she was able to bring up all her children to reach a higher level of education we need to survive in this challenging world. It's quite a contrast to herself who didn't even have the opportunity to study like us and that makes me so proud of her for her dedication and determination to see us through with successes. My mom doesn't even recognize all the alphabets but she could say a few words of English and recognizes numbers. What is so special about my mom is she could recite the whole Quran.
Sometimes, I read to her some stories/articles from the books/internet which I translated to my dialect. She would listen very attentively. That's my mom. She's learning through listening.
Today, I’m re-posting the poem I wrote for her last year. I had it posted on 13.5.2012.

Your love is as warm as the morning sun
Beautiful as the million stars in the sky
If there's precious diamond in the world
It can't beat the precious heart that you have
When everyone else turns away from me
You embrace me with words of encouragement
You are my shelter from harsh weathers
You are my umbrella on rainy days
You are my light at night for the right paths
You are the hand that guides me through
thick and thin, from wrong to right
You are the beautiful woman, my beautiful mother
Who will always remain beautiful to me for eternity
For every beautiful thing you do makes my life beautiful
Happy Mother's Day to my beloved mom and to all moms of the world!
I love you, Mom!
Mother's Love Is Unconditional
