…How do you do it?
I watch you everyday in amazement! I see you go out at the break of dawn and come back at sunset. I hear your bedroom door slam shut after you when you wake up at midnight everyday for as long as I can remember for your midnight prayers! I see your face: its beauty doesn’t change. That smile that lights up my whole life never fades from your dark, pretty face no matter what life throws at you! Dearest mom, how do you do that?
