Mahfooz Ali (28 October / Lucknow (U.P.) India)
Nothing to offer just thanks Mom....
Never had the chance to say
Thank you for letting me live this life.
I thank you for punishing me when I was young,
just to make me wiser, without it today where
would I be and whom would I be.
I thank you for lifting me up on my worse days and
giving me word of encouragement to ease the burden and pain....
I thank you for saying no when I wanted to go out
with my friends, I learn the best things life has to offer....
but with your
love and support, I am who I am today....
I thank you Mom because today who I am is who you make me to be.
I thank you Mom for teaching me what faith is.
Today I have faith,
I believe in me and I can conquer any
Obstacle life has in my path.
Mom I don't have anything to offer you,
Nor a prize or award,
But most of all I am dedicating this poem that comes from
the bottom of my heart;
It has a lot of meaning to me because without you
and teaching me about life,
Today I wouldn't be here....
