Potshangbam Nyaydhar *
She is far away from me, so far.
Reason for me to study is to make her happy.
She makes pickle of a whole jar,
She makes sooktany as black as tar.
Far away, but, I see her in every shining star,
Giving ways to shine like a star.
She keeps everything intact,
Not to cause the family disarray.
The exemplification of motherhood she is,
As caring as mothers of bollywood.
So early in the morning she wakes,
Without giving anyone a shake.
On time, she finishes her chores,
Without leaving anything behind unattended,
Tying up every loose end,
And I love her to the core.
Alas! when she gets angry, like a lioness she roars,
Everything I do is not to make her heart tore.
Her only aim is to have a sound and secure home for all,
She mends my every wound,
Until it is completely cured.
Her heart as pure as gold,
So selfless, warm and caring with empathy,
With so motherly tenderness she folds my cloths.
So sacrificing is her life,
Living daily for the good future of her kids,
Making us grow healthy with her delicious foods.
She cooks like master chef,
Transporting us all into the heavenly dine,
With the regular treat of her homely dishes
Never keeping for herself,
Every morning a deft multitasker,
Without making any fuss or grumble,
In and out of kitchen she rushes,
To prepare breakfast for us,
Attending to our every need.
A woman of steel is my mom,
Like a tigress for her cubs,
She would protect us from every harm.
Hope! A super granny in the making,
Flooding us with her overflowing love,
The only mom I know in this life.
I love you mama
