It was international women’s day yesterday. And my whatsapp and Facebook was bombarded with messages from friends and family . And it felt special when so many people wish you on women’s day , you do feel loved and cared . On women’s day I take this opportunity to thank my mother and all the mothers who selflessly work day and night to bring us with so much love and care , whether remaining awake in the night when we are down with fever or saving the last morsel of our favorite food or remaining awake while we study for exams , a relation between child and mother is the most pious relationship in the world.
I share a very special bond with my mother and she is the only person in the world that I talk to every single day sharing all the humdrum things of my life . This poem I wrote while I was in class 8 and it is still written in the diary kept at home. On women’s day I revisited the poem for what I had written so many years back and I was pleased with the result. Hope you enjoy the same , do leave me few words of encouragement if it touched you in some ways.
You are the wind below my wings
The blood in my veins
The blessings in my life
And the faith in adversity.
You are the hope in despair
The flowers in my worship
The rhythm in my walk
And the music in my words
Your voice , chimes like bells
And when you sing , I forget all my pain
When I am tired or in doubt
Your words of endearment calm me down
O, My dear loving mother
You are the sacrosanct semblance of almighty
You gave me life with your blood and marrow
And bought me to this divine earth
What I am today is your vision
Your dreams and aspirations
And what I will be tomorrow
It’s the fruit of all your labour
O Maa , My dear Maa
The stream of my life
Enlighten all my life
With thy love and blessings.
