Mother's Day - Poem by Jay P Narain

I must be dreaming,
breakfast in bed with a bouquet of roses?
When I open my eyes, I see smiling kids,
waiting to wish my wife a happy Mother's day.

We were all waiting for Mom to enjoy her meal,
She waits for a while, feeds me a little,
she shares the goodies with the children,
Finally she puts the food in her mouth,
with the smile and happiness hard to believe.

The glimpses of our life roll before my eyes,
I can see her shaking the baby in her lap whole night,
the lullabies she sang, worked on me more than the baby that night,
I could see her hugging the kids in the day care center in the late afternoons,
as if she had found the biggest missing treasures in the world that time.

I could envision her entire life,
dedicated to keep the children and me very happy,
her own wishes and desires could wait little longer,
the only wish she had was to make everyone happy in the family.

I wish we had Mother's day many times a year,
it will be a moment for all of us to reflect,
the contributions and sacrifices Mothers make,
Although the economist may come with $140,000 a year price tag,
I believe the affection and dedication of motherhood is priceless.
