A Short Poem
I thought of writing a few lines on this auspicious mother’s day….
But I failed, I tried again and failed, and again and again failed…
Through which word I can express sweetness other than mom….
Through which word I can express the feeling of being safe other than mom…..
Through which word I can express actual sacrifice other than mom…..
Through which word I can express first and best loving teacher other than mom..
Through which word I can express the meaning of genuine love other than mom….
Through which words I can express strength and support other than mom….
For the women who can mix food with love, who empathizes with me in every problem, whose stomach gets full when I ate, who will be in Cloud 9 when I achieve something…. I believe the oxford dictionary may fall short of words if I try to describe her greatness.
If any such word exists in all languages with millions of emotions, then that definitely will be a mother.Happy Mother’s Day Amma
