MA - My Mother

Reading my lessons quietly
My mind went astray
I realized, how I had
Taken the moments 
Spent with my Ma, lightly

She is Omnipresent,
Showering her radiance
Like a smiling moon crescent.

Today as I sit alone
I resent:
I never took out time to say
‘I Love you Ma’

You are my most prized relation
The holiest Love, I could ever have
A stupendous blessing
That is always in my grab

Her unfailing support
Her genuine concern
Care and bliss
Snuggles and cuddle
Kisses and hugs
Flowers and tears

Her innocence
Would sometimes make her cry;
And I would also cry
To see a smile on her face

I always think of her
She is always in my heart
She is a gift from above

If there is God
Ma would be one
Nobody can be like her
This can’t be undone

I have hurt her at times
I have been rude, other times
Only later do I realize
That I am on the wrong side

But with my Ma beside
She lessened my guilt
And rectified my fault

Though Far,
I know she is near

As my heart beats
I may skip to think of her
But she thinks
Involuntarily about me
More often than her heart-beats

She is the most
Wonderful person
I have ever known
As I have slowly grown!

PS: I Love you Ma. I always now make it a point to talk to Ma, Pa and Nani (my grandmother) daily. So much so that it has become a habit or you can say a part of my daily routine. I am what I am because of them! I am blessed to have their guiding wisdom on all fronts.

  6. A mother is the best friend anyone could ever ask for. When everyone else turns away, she is the one turning towards you, when you fall, she’s the one that helps you up and when your heart is filled with despair, she’s the one that gives you a glimpse of hope.

    Beautiful poem :)
