A Perplexing Situation

” Mom, what’s the problem with you?”, the little one asked in despair,

“The opportunities to go out with friends, are so so rare..”

She tried to explain the universal truth, as she gazed into the innocent little eyes,

” Don’t know how to tell you, the world is wicked. and you still aren’t worldly wise..!!”

The Pious Relation

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.
