Children are like butterflies

Children are like butterflies 

They will continue their life without us. 


Mum is like mortar 

We are like bricks 

She puts us all together and builds the lovely family. 


Children make everything nice and bright 

She gives happiness and smiles to everything. 


Of course, being a parent isn’t easy 

But every moment is special 

It doesn’t matter where we are 

I always love my family. 


Time is flying 

We won’t see our children at this age again 

We have to catch them, our butterflies. 


Love, kiss and hug each other deeply 

My dream is for my sweet child to be happy in her life 

Just live your life, butterfly.
