(‘My Person’: someone who is my confidant; my friend, philosopher and guide; who can read my heart and talk to my eyes. And this could be no one else but my mother. )
This piece is dedicated to my mother who is my biggest support, critic and guide. I can never thank her enough for what she does but I can surely make her feel special in my own unique way. This poem is just to let her know that she is the best and the loveliest.
Now that I have become a mother myself, I know that motherhood ain’t easy and I value, even more, the hardships and pains that my mom must have gone through while raising a difficult girl like me. So here is my small attempt to thank my mom for always being there by my side.
Oh mother! You are my guiding light
who illuminates the paths I traverse.
You are my source of strength.
Every time I fall I look upto your hands
which are ready to caress me,
pat my back and encourage me to rise again.
You are the angel of my life
who would always bring a smile on my face.
Seeing you I forget my worries
Talking to you I feel light
Sleeping on your lap makes me experience heaven.
It is usually said that God is invisible
But ask me ! I can hug my ‘God’ everyday
and feel the divinity of her arms.
Thank you mom
for being what you are
and for making me what I am.
Your love never needs a condition
Your trust never needs a reason
Thank you mom for being ‘My Person’
