When You Are A Mother

When you are a mother
Your world exists around your children
Your happiness is tied to their laughter
Giggles
Hopes and dreams
 
When you are a mother
Your tears of joy fall on the footsteps of their gladness
And the tears of worry follow the trace of their sadness
Disappointments
And heartbreaks
 
When you are a mother
You’ll find your true self in your child’s eyes
You will find comfort with their touch in your arms
And
You’ll find treasure
In the sweetness of their voice
 
When you are a mother
You dignified as a person
And given a purpose of sharing your days and dreams
With their laughter and more
 
When you are a mother
You are secondary to your own
But your love expands from ordinary
To extraordinary
Until you become whole

      and I am the only one son of my kind mother and I know how she is compassion. I cannot execute the rights which my mother has on me as much more I attempt I can't, therefor I can pray for my mother and ask from my almighty Allah to settle her in paradise (Janat).

        Stay blessed with your mother.
