I Pray For You


Mother
What can I say?
I thank my God everyday
I pray for you all the day
Mother
How will I pray?
For all your love and all your pains
Mother
What can I do?
To show how much I really love you
Mother
Where will I find?
The perfect word to describe your kindness
Mother
You are indeed a role model
Which truly are?
I don’t think He made anyone as kind as you are
Mother

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
