Mother! - Poem by Lakshmi Venkataraman

When I cry; I feel her arm consoling me
When I laugh; I feel her shoulder besides me
When I fall; I feel her pulling me up
When I rise; I feel her pushing me up
When I need hope; her mere sight does it
When I need courage; her smile gives it in a flash
Just her touch makes diamond go valueless
Just her name revitalizes me
Just spelt M-O-T-H-E-R.
