Mother

  You gave me shelter I didn’t bother,
You sacrificed everything to foster me,
I ignored you in one way or the other.
Yelling I want to be independent and free.

You yearned to hug me, I didn’t notice.
I never paid attention to your forlorn face.
To your affection I always did injustice.
Though your warmth offered me solace.

You chided me, I misunderstood you,
Thought you were poking your nose.
You gifted me dress and shoes brand new.
I didn’t even show gratitude with a rose.

You wove my sweater, I wasn’t grateful
I took your care always for granted.
Forgetting how for me you were fretful,
Overlooking the lullabies you chanted.

Now I feel deprived of your gentle incessant love,
Recognize that no one can ever be your substitute.
You are the best blessing from the heaven above.
The absence of your supervision makes me a destitute.

Now I realize your true significance,
Now I can value your ardor and care,
Sense that of eternal love you are evidence.
When I see you helpless in the wheelchair.

Your paralyzed arms still yearn to hold me,
Your distorted face yet watches me with concern,
Nevertheless your eyes hold the same courtesy,
Your fervor is something which by money I can’t earn.
