I Am In My Mother's Eyes Poem by Bharati Nayak

I Am In My Mother's Eyes

Rating: 4.8

Oh Mother
I am
That daughter of yours
Who you see
as capable for every thing
You dream your unrealised dreams
Through my eyes
You see me as one
Who progresses ahead
Setting aside all hurdles
My every success
Becomes your pride.

You say
I am beautiful
All Sarees look nice on me
I also admit
I can wear nicely
All colour Sarees
Be it of anger or anguish
Neglect or intolerance
I drape them
So dexterously
That I look beautiful to all.

No, No,
Perhaps I look beautiful to you
You say
Your daughter is beautiful
You don't know
How much strength
Is there in your words
Only I know
It is your love
That are my weapons
My power
I dazzle in this light and
I look beautiful
So beautiful!
