For My Mother

I shall put you in my box
The first kiss that you gave me as a baby
The warm hug you gave me
The generosity that you showed me

I shall put in my box
The toy you brought for me
The bicycle you bought for me
Indeed, I felt so special to have you Mom

Mom, I shall put you in my box,
Not forgetting the recipe that you taught me,
The crispy chicken skin,
And fresh food you made me.
The igneous rock that describes you,
Because you are beautiful outside, but tough inside.
