Who used to hug you and buy you new clothes, comb your hair and blow your nose

My mother and her mother (my nenek lah, but we call her nyai because we are Jawa Johor..haha)
Dear Mak,

Today is your 56th birthday! It must have been quite handful to have me as your daughter and then having me and my husband and Husayn stay with you and Abah. And I know I have hurt you a lot before and I am really sorry because sometimes this hard-headed girl need a huge reality check to set things straight. I looove you so much Mak and may Allah blessed you always! I dedicate Yusuf Islam's Your Mother to you because everytime I hear this song I will nearly cry and start reminiscing all the hurts and tears that I have caused you sometimes and this song also make me super thankful to have you as my mother!

Who should I give my love to?
My respect and my honor to
Who should I pay good mind to?
After Allah
And Rasulullah

Comes your mother
Who next? Your mother
Who next? Your mother
And then your father

Cause who used to hold you
And clean you and clothes you
Who used to feed you?
And always be with you
When you were sick
Stay up all night
Holding you tight
That's right no other
Your mother (My mother)

Who should I take good care of?
Giving all my love
Who should I think most of?
After Allah
And Rasulullah

Comes your mother
Who next? Your mother
Who next? Your mother
And then your father

Cause who used to hear you
Before you could talk
Who used to hold you?
Before you could walk
And when you fell who picked you up
Clean your cut
No one but your mother
My mother

Who should I stay right close to?
Listen most to
Never say no to
After Allah
And Rasulullah

Comes your mother
Who next? Your mother
Who next? Your mother
And then your father

Cause who used to hug you
And buy you new clothes
comb your hair
And blow your nose
And when you cry
Who wiped your tears?
Knows your fears
Who really cares?
My mother

Say Alhamdulillah
Thank you Allah
Thank you Allah
For my mother.
