Mother Day Questins - Poem by U Win Kyi

MOTHER'S DAY  is just at the corner.
Some questions must be honestly answered.
Are you a good son or a good daughter?
Are you angry at your mum's babbling?
If so, remember her breast-feeding to your hungry crying.
Are you mad at her drooling saliva?
If so, remember her wiping of your nasal catarrh.
Have you ever felt disgust at her clothes soiled with stool?
If so, remember her hand-washing of your diaper dirtied with pooh.
Have you ever grumbled about your postponed dating due to her illness?
If so, remember her caring of you with fever many nights...sleepless.
Have you ever felt impatient about her asking you to repeat the sentence 
as she is becoming more and more deaf?
If so, remember your favorite bed-time story
she told you repeatedly until she felt sleepy.
Have you ever felt boring 
to prevent her falling 
while she weakly walking?
If so, remember she taught you walk.
She picked you up when you dropped.
She encouraged you not to give up when you sobbed.
Have you ever complained about her frequent visits to hospital?
If so, remember the severest labor pain she suffered
during the time you were born 
and raised you grow very strong 
like a tall oak tree
like a bird flying free.
