I still remember those days in school, When the new atmosphere and unknown classmates didn't appear to be as cool. I would cry and eagerly wait for the hours to end To return back home and meet you again. As I grew up, I made many friends. Some were jovial while others are quite reluctant to befriend. But whenever I was asked about my best friend, My mouth would always utter your name. "Mom!" You stood with me When nobody was there for me. You have given me tremendous love, care, and happiness. And sleeping on your lap, I forget all pain and sadness. The way you work for me the whole day without getting tired Is what makes me terrified. Are you a human or a superhuman? Just tell me Oh Dear Woman! What I am today is all because of your sincere efforts. As to send me outside to study, you had the guts. You taught me the true meaning of life And made me understand the value of struggle and strife. You gave me the courage to face this cruel world And taught me to accept my failures and learn from them without getting sad. Dear Mom! I see God in You. You are a guiding light to me amid intense darkness Being always strong and beautiful full of brightness.
