My mother weeps and I don't know why

My mother weeps and I don’t know why.
When I see my mother weep, I feel a stab through my heart because there’s nothing I could do to stop her tears.
Every single one of her tears has the value of a diamond to me.
There are not many mothers out there like mine.
My mother is like a piece of gold thread in a stack of hay,
It’s hard to find.
I love my mother more than anything in the world.
She’s done so much for me and has gone through a lot to help me.
She’s the reason I want to be successful in life.
She’ taught me to never give up on my dreams and to keep going no matter what happens in life.
But when I see my mother weep and there’s nothing I could do, I feel as if my world breaks in half.
As if it were a sunny day and suddenly dark clouds come and conquer the beautiful warm day.
There is a story behind her tears and I don’t know what it is.
If I could give my life for hers, I wouldn’t even hesitate to.
My mother weeps and I don’t know why.
