When I come home late,
there is no one who notices my absence,
only my mother.

When I switch off my mobile phone,
no one tries to call me,
only my mother.
She phones a hundred times.

When I feel sad, fall ill, feel tired,
no one consoles me,
only my mother.

When I grow up, when I pass an exam,
no one cries for joy,
only my mother.

Dear mother,
if I were to spend my whole life
kissing your feet,
I would not tire of it.
