This is a very special poem – closest to my heart. My ma, who is and will always be the best of the best, doesn’t even know that I’ve written a poem for her. I am quite inexpressive and aloof in reality, so my loved ones do not even know if I love them as much as they do. Poems are the only way for me to convey my feelings for them. This one is for you MA.
Hi Mom! Do you recognize me?
On this note, mama laughs “he he he”.
Then I ask her, “Can I wear this tee?”
She replies with a nod and a smile for free.
Then I start choosing a new T-shirt,
To make sure that it is free of dirt.
“Baby, what are you doing? It just irks”,
Says my mom, and picks up a clean, green shirt.
She gets me ready, makes me look smart,
Happily I put on my shoes, and then start.
The journey for which a bag I cart,
And she bids me goodbye with a broken heart.
I encounter obstacles, she gets worried,
I start feeling hungry, and she doesn’t eat.
She feels hurt when any rude guy I meet,
But I know nothing about this; am unaware of it.
After my journey ends and I come back,
Tired yet happy, I put down my backpack.
My mom smiles and gets me some snack,
I don’t even know how I must thank!
No one knows the value of a mother,
And no one even tries to bother.
But, as I know the importance of my mother,
I will care for her; ’cause I won’t get another.
