Mother - Poem by Sujit Sinha

Mother I know
That when I was born
I was just an organ
That sprang from you,
But Mother you knew better.
You looked at me and saw
Apple of Man's eyes
Some one who has come
To fulfill Human hopes.

For every child is a dream born to mankind.

Unquestioningly you cared.
Your hands reached me before mine,
You knew the answers before
I learnt to question.
You draped and walked me
Stood by me in times bad and good.

For every child is a dream born to mankind.

And mother, I know
I out grew your loving hands
Became bold and vain
I squandered and wasted
but, to you Mother,
I remained the same.

The child who came as a dream.
