Let me tell you a story,
Which is played in every home!
About an angel who lives among us,
Whether it is Delhi, Paris or Rome!!
You may ask who is she,
Who fills our lives with sunshine!
Close your eyes and just say,
She is the wonderful mother of mine!!
For I can bet that,
When you did close your eyes!
What you felt was,
The joy of the strongest of all ties!!
We will always be a child to her,
Though she has seen us grow fivefold!!
If we follow the tears she shed for us,
It will lead to her heart of gold!!
We work all week long,
And always cherish our Sundays!
But the most ungrateful job is hers,
For she choses not to take any off days!!
The wonderful days of childhood,
We would do anything for a recap!
I will tell you one way you could,
Just sleep again in your mother’s lap!!
When God created the world he knew,
Every time he can’t come to the rescue!
He could foresee the future horrors,
And that’s why He made Mothers!!
What it is like to be a woman,
A man is perhaps incapable to understand!
It would take us a lifetime to realise,
That when compared to her, nowhere we stand!!
She has the power,
To mesmerize the world with her smile!
As daughter, wife, mother, and friend,
She makes many lives worthwhile!!
In giving birth she faces pain,
Many times more than ever experienced by man!
Still she forgets it with a smile and gets ready,
For her life as a mother just began!!
Performing the role of a wife and a mother,
She is the pillar of strength in every family!
Competing and thriving in a male centric society,
She is nothing less than a one man army!!
If we recount the impact of women in our lives,
We will realise it is nothing less than massive!
I can go on and on but eventually,
Even I will fall short of an adjective!!
As with most men, too egoistic to give her credit,
Even I was unaware of her strength and capability!
Till an amazingly wonderful woman made me realise,
That to be respected is not only her right, but also our duty!!
