RECUERDOS by jjméndez

                          RECUERDOS

Who…
Calmed your throat and cured your cough
Dried your tears and wiped your nose?

Who…
Caressed your face and cleaned your hands
Subdued your fears and cried for your losses?

Who…
Felt your pain and remembered your birthday
Overlooked your faults and forgot your mistakes?

Who
Suffered your losses and celebrated your gains
Fought for your rights and believe in your cause?

Who
Mended your broken heart and gave you hope
Prayed for your safety and blessed all your triumphs?


Who
Gave you birth and heartfelt love with unexpected return 
And…
            Still waits all night long for you to come home?

At this very moment somewhere in this turning world…

                            Somebody's mother is still doing it all.
