(This poem is written by my thirteen year old son Aekansh on the Mother’s Day)
The things that I haven’t told you till today
About how I felt along the way
For the love you gave me and for the hard work you’ve done,
Here’s appreciation from your son.
My sweet mom, you are the best in the world
I will always love you, I give you my word
You took care of me since I was born
For you, fame and respect I will earn.
I have given you months of pain
But my cries you have always heard
You have sung songs for me
Like a sweet, singing bird.
At times you are soft, at times hard
I will always care for you and be your guard
Dear mummy, your love has no bounds
I have always longed to hear your soothing sounds.
