To A Good Mother

Poem By Juan Varela

To endure for me great pain of birth
gorgeous award you have won
god deluge you with a ton of blessings
with all the honor and pomp

You taught me to love my native soil
fulfilling with love my early days
even if perhaps your innermost was suffering
you always presented me a happy face

You have faced hundreds of perils
to defend and take care of your son
always guiding me with the good pattern
of the precious words of the lord

If in any occasion a problem beset you
with joyfulness you concealed it
telling me nothing at all about it
not to cause sorrows to me

You never mind if it was off key
you sang a song to make me sleep
and today your son always adored
with reverence thanks for raising me up

You were my great guide and always will
now and forever I manifest to all
that in life you’re everything to me
although for everyone you’re only a mom
