The purpose of song was about my one and only mother who was there to love, gives out lecture and seeks out the best for me. She always told that “I only lecture because I love you, no one will lecture like I do.” Mother, if you are reading this, I just want to let you know that I love you with all heart. I will always be there by your side like you were there for me. Mother, I love you to the moon and back! ❤️

This is my first official song that I created. Not the best but these words came from the heart and it’s the thoughts that counts! I would to like give a shout out to my mentors: Yeej Moua, Vin Lu and Randy Xiong mixing official instrumental. ENJOY!
