There is a tie that never dies
between a mother and her son,
no matter distance or reason
or wherever their fates decides,
she feels it when he is close by,
even when he is far away.
She prays for him day after day
and knows how swiftly time can fly
by holding a babe one minute
then walking a young boy to school,
the next he’s off to war so cruel,
while we think time is infinite.
For all her life, he is her son,
the best thing she has ever done.
