Now, I don’t really care, she is my grown-up girl
Once I was the oyster to protect my baby pearl
That was the time, to her a lullaby I would sing
She would gently fall asleep, beneath my caring wings
And now is the time, my girl is busy, full of aggression
Wrinkles on my eyes desperately seek her attention
Then a day arrived when she said,
‘Mum it’s your birthday, let’s celebrate’
At home I awaited her, for a mother-daughter meet
I cooked chicken for her that day, my darling loves it!
But she dint turn up as promised, my heart sank
I consoled myself, she must be playing pranks
She came home late night, no wishes, no celebration
Just a ‘Good Night’, she had forgotten the occasion
Hush lil heart! She is grown up after all, those emotions won’t stay
Hope she is in safe hands, from the core of my heart I pray!
