The way you held me close to you, and taught me how to write..
I wish the life would also let me color, with strokes light and bright.
Your being next to me, is my biggest strength you know,
Wish i could tell you how much i love you, and how much to you i owe.
In the folds of your sari somewhere, my childhood can still be found..
I know you still dream of me, and pray that i stay safe and sound.
This selfless love can be found, only in you, o dear mother..
Nobody can nurture a child so tirelessly, none another.
