Gods can’t be everywhere
So born holy mothers are
The sole embodiment of spirit
Always honored, high in their merit
Ever loving, compassionate friend
Whose noble endurance knows no end.
Lively spirit lovingly cares to take all pains
Sufferings, hardships smilingly for no gains
Embraces, comforts, and inspires one to face
The life’s challenges with restraint and peace!
Moral supporter, guide and symbol of fertility
Ensures safety for entire humanity!
If great mother Kali frightened injustice
And Mother Mary sacrificed Jesus for Justice
Who can forget mother Yashoda of Sri Krishan
So also Mother Anjali of Lord Hanuman
For their great love not only for their sons
But to free the entire race of humans and Gods
Don’t we honour their love for mankind?
If the same mothers of our nations
Could widen their narrow horizons
And look at others’ babies as theirs’
Free from feelings of caste and Creed
And thoughts of being low or high
And come smilingly forward
To give solace and love to the tired
Bones of the loveless and the abandoned
Then the world around looks to everyone
Much brighter and hopeful
And none left behind as hapless orphans
Every son and daughter born gets a gentle mother
And mothers in turn, .a spectrum of lovely children!
