Dear Mother

"I'm really hungry, mom. Can I get something to eat?"

The mom goes away to look for some food. She looks around all evening and finally comes back with a small cob of corn.

"Here son, you can eat this."

"Can I have all of it?"

"Yes you can, darling. I'm not hungry today."

"But you did not eat anything all day right?"

"It's okay. If you eat, my hunger shall disappear as well."

"Oh mom, how can you always be so kind."

"That's how we mothers are, dear son."

"That's why I kiss the floor you walk on, mother."
