I have always been unfair to her,
But never realized,
Now I regret,
For my selfish behaviour.
Sometimes I complained,
Sometimes I disdained,
And when I accepted my mistake and said ‘Sorry’
She hugged me and replied, ‘Don’t worry’.
She showered love and care without expecting,
And sacrificed so many things for my good upbringing.
She moulded me in the best way,
I acknowledge it when people praise me today.
Which makes me feel nice and fortunate,
I know I can never compensate.
But I believe it’s never too late.
I wish to confess,
She is the reason for my success,
Only through words I can express,
It’s time to honour her,
The greatest lady in my life, ‘My mother’.
