Did I Ever Tell You?

Your heart is an ocean of love,
You have filled my life with all the rainbow colours,
You always protect me against life’s blowing winds,
You are my blanket of warmth.

Did I ever tell you, my mother?
Your smile is like my inspiration to live,
I always admire your patience in our tough times,
You are a pole star in my universe,
A guide, a light – when most needed.

Did I ever tell you, my mother?
I can see the tears in your eyes when I am unwell,
Brings me closer to you more so than ever before,
Your indomitable will surprises me,
Your tender care always makes me feel better.

Did I ever tell you, my mother?
Every time when I fail at life’s unexpected hurdles,
I am not ashamed of myself,
As I know you will never judge me,
Your confidence makes me feel – winning the lost battle.

Did I ever tell you, my mother?
I can never repay you for all your efforts,
The way you take care of your children,
From breakfast to our late night dinner,
I can understand why God created a mother.

I will tell you now, my mother?
After all these years,
Before it gets too late,
Few words to express my gratitude,
I am proud to be your daughter.
