Mother's Day

While I saw the news today,
They all mentioned "Mother's Day",
What was that to me, I asked?
Thank my mom for all my past?

Gosh! How awful was that I said?
Wondering the idea crossed, whosever's head? 
What thank you and what gratitude?
Is that even possible, you smart little dude?

Into the world I came from her womb,
Right into her cozy arms, my largest room!
In her eyes, it was my face I first saw,
Seeing her smiley face, I first said "ma"

With every breath I took till date,
Standing beside me, she shaped my fate,
So far I took more than a zillion breaths,
Like an elastic band for me she has stretched...

I can only list food, clothes and tangible things,
Can I list love, affection, tears, sweat, blood and all her feelings?
So is this one day and a “Thank you” going to sum it all?
Never my dear friend, not at all!

I am only due to my mother,
A part of her, I am her daughter,
As long as I live, indebted I shall remain,
It is her blood that flows in my veins…

On this earth that I live each day,
For me every single day is mother’s day…
For what all can I say “Thank you”?
As the very next second I say “Ma I need you”

She is the one who is happy when I smile,
Those are her tears which flow, when I cry,
When I’m hurt, she bears the all pain,
Calming me, things to me she explains…

Thank you is small and a negligible word,
Only to be ignored, after being heard,
Summing my gratitude & love, A wish I have compiled,
That in my next birth, she agrees to have me again as her child……..
