Mother

Methmi Mandara 2007 (Matara)

All the months you kept me in the womb of you
Memories of those will never fade in you
Months after I came to you
All the love is here for you

AMMA, You are the best!

My life, was colored with vivid rays because of you
On sleepless nights, since I was sick, stayed you
The pains of those is still in you
Holding my hand, took me to light, it's you
Escape, I can't, Want to stay with you
Remembering memories of me and you

MOTHER, you are the best!

Our goddess in the shelter is you
Kind heart gleaming bright in you
At my success, behind it's you
Act as rough but soft hearted you
Sang lullabies when cuddled by you
And the milk I sucked from you
Never I can repay, I owe you

OKAASAN, you are the best!

Entered to the world because of you
Obstacles were gone, who chased, it's you
Many facts of life I learnt from you
More long years, I'll be beside you
And I know, with me it's you

EOMMA, you are the best!

Middle in my heart, always you
Apologizing for moments being angry with you
Maximum love received from you
At your feet, I respect you

MAMA, you are the best!

Melting buttered heart in you
Amazed by qualities of you
Deepest love for kids of you
Resembling the love, she is you
End isn't written in the story of me and you

MADRE, you are the best!
