A GIFT

(Dedicated to my mother)

 

You smiled at me,

Even though you were in pain,

You sacrificed for me,

Never thought about your gain.

 

You brought me up,

With lots of love and affection,

You stood by me,

Giving me utmost protection.

 

You inculcated in me,

Good habits and values,

You patiently taught me,

Prepare savoury menus.

 

You still care for me,

Although I stay remote,

You are divine to me,

My precious gift from God.
