Teresa

Why does she do it? Why she does it at all?
Raise people in agony, never let them fall?

Why does she do it? Why bother so much?
For people who are, strangers as such?

Why does she do it? Work all day and night?
Giving people hope, urging them to fight?

Why does she do it? What returns she get?
Everything goes waste, as people forget.

Why does she do it? Doesn’t care for her loss
Moves with her only asset, The Holy Cross.

Why does she do it? Fervently, I once asked her
Smiling, she replied, because I am your Mother.
