Mama used her younger years raising her kids
She woke up early and slept late
When she got sick, she took care of herself.
She somehow always kept the house clean, despite three children growing almost at the same time
When she found time, she sang
And she had such a beautiful voice
I loved how mama sang.
Mama is older now
Her confidence sometimes falters
So I remind her of her strength and how much I admire her.
She gets tired easily now
So I try to let her rest as much as possible.
Mama still has a lot of her funny side though
And for that, I am always thankful for.
