The Greatest Gift
I opened my eyes, and then I know that the world is a beautiful place because the first thing I saw is your smile as a greeting. You embraced me as you cry, with tears of joy, your warmth comes from the bottom of your heart, that is why I can cry, knowing that you’ll be there beside me.
You were there from the beginning, nurturing me with all the love that you can give. You touched me with your tender hands, yet with the same hands you protected me so bravely. I am a living witness to your unwavering determination to give me the world and the skies with whatever can fit in your gentle palms.
You thought me how to walk, now I can stand by my own two fit and go to places you’ve never been before. You thought me how to speak, now I can tell the world the feelings that I have. You thought me how to smile; now I can face adversities with all optimism. You thought me how to love; now I can share the same love to those who lack it. You thought me how to appreciate life, which is why I thank you for raising the person I am now….the person who values the life that you’ve given.
Thank you, you are a very sweet person, a person who is unique enough to teach me not to lie. Which is why what I’m about to say is the truest of the truth, more than everything that I know, one thing is above all, you thought me what a mother is, and all I can say is;
“A MOTHER IS THE GREATEST GIFT A CHILD CAN GET”.
