To my Mother....

The great Gift to mankind to guide every Human being to turn into an angel is & will be the existence of Mother in our lives.Every year I'm not at home but I call my Mother to wish her and make her feel the closest person in my life for making me learn & thanking her for what i'm today. Thanks alot Ma. Happy Mother's Day! (I know you don't go through my site but you'll in my prayers always)

Before I Was Myself, You Made Me, Me.


Before I was myself you made me, me
With love and patience, discipline and tears,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,
Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
Though well within the headlands of your fears.
Before I was myself you made me, me
With dreams enough of what I was to be
And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,
Relinquishing your powers gradually
To let me shape myself among my peers.
Before I was myself you made me, me,
And being good and wise, you gracefully
As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears
Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.
For love inspires learning naturally:
The mind assents to what the heart reveres.
And so it was through love you made me, me
By slowly stepping back to set me free.

Dimitri Shostakovich.
