ENGLISH TRANSLATION
Hi Mother, Dear Mother, how are you doing?
Sorry I havent called recently, Im getting by okay
*Your body is small and so are your hands
White hairs are mixed in and youve grown more genial
But to me youre still bigger than anything, stronger than
anyone
I want to tell my kids about this love that supported me
Even though I grow impatient when Im near you
When youre far away from me I grow lonely
Thats who you are to me, you can cut through any problem
and solve it
And you have the most patience and toughness of anyone I
know
You would always be concerned over my well-being before your
own
Cooking, doing the laundry, cleaning, raising a child
You even worked during your free time
You would only require things from the lowest places
I didnt understand even though it was so obvious
It wasnt until I started living by myself that I understood
Whenever I think of how much youve accomplished

And how hard it must have been, I feel like I can try my best
today
(Repeat*)
Id say, Wake me up at seven a.m.
And you would wake me up right on time
But I would be unfair to you
And say the words shut up while I was still half-asleep
This was the daily routine
You never made one tired face
And woke me up every day
Warmer and more accurately than any alarm clock
But then one day I skipped school and said, I dont wanna go
I wouldnt leave my futon and you stood in front of me
Hid your face with both hands and cried loudly
I also felt sad and cried
At that time I blamed myself wondering, How could I be so
stupid?
Your body is small and so are your hands
White hairs are mixed in and youve grown more genial
But to me youre still bigger than anything, stronger than
anyone
I give you thanks for this love that supported me, my mother
I know theres nothing more painful in the world
Than a parent burying their child
So Ill make sure it never happens
Even if I only live one second longer than you
Ill make sure of it
Im glad Im your child
Im glad youre my mother
And that wont ever change
It wont ever change for all time
Because I am the very image of you
(Repeat*)
Be my mother forever
Be well forever
You still have one more job left to do
And thats to accept your sons love and respect for you
