Mother's Day - Poem by Ritu Shah

As I opened my eyes every morning
She stood in front of me carrying a glass of milk
Making an excuse I threw it off
And she ran behind calling me sweet

Before I opened my wardrobe to get ready
She stood there carrying my shirt
I cried for not going to school
And she promised to give me a chocolate when I return

I came back home in a dirty uniform
And she waited for me to offer some food
I threw my bag there and bottle somewhere
And ran away to play with my group

I played different pranks to avoid my homework
And she derived ways to develop my interest
When she held my plate to make me eat
I kept myself engrossed in Mickey and Donald

A good night sleeps when I went for
She came to check if I was well covered
Before I would wake up the next day
She would have all my things in order

So before she goes to sleep today
I want to stand there for her
Not with a gift, just the wishes
Thanking her for what she has done
What am I today, wherever am I
Is all because of her love and care
Not for her, but for myself
I thank my life, I thank my mother.
Even I forget, she won’t mind
For her, I’ll always be her sweet little child
To a lady, whose love is so eternal and pure
I promise to take care of her for sure
