My Children

The syllables of your names

fills my heart with love.

It is with much pride and jubilation

that I remember the paths you crossed

from childhood to the adolescent

in this land, which was not our motherland

but is our adopted motherland

and in this adopted motherland

you walked straight and made a life

worth living.

You made me proud

as any mother would be

and I keep loving you

ever and beyond.

Remember, when you look

into the eyes of your loved ones

a spark of our motherland shines there

and when you look into

the eyes of those you love

remember

life is a smile on your face

and a spark in your eyes

regardless.
