She was there by your side
When you for the first time cried
Since that day you became her pride
She kissed on your eyes wide.
With joy she beamed
When you stood up and gleamed
She heard you say “mother”
It was a joy to her like none other.
You turned a year old
And your first birthday she did hold
For you she took pains to bake
And ever since you got the cake.
She helped you get used to a new rule,
When you began to go to school,
She prepared you for school fast,
You never asked whether she had her breakfast.
Whenever you fell sick,
She felt in her a prick,
She took you to the doctor
And you got better
You never asked it
Whether or not she was fit.
She cooked your favorite breakfast,
The day you went to the office first,
You got your paycheck and became independent
With your friends happy times you spent
It’s for their smiles and praises that you cared
A thought for her you never spared.
She is now old and lonely,
And still thinking of you only,
Your company is what she bids,
Your loving touch is what she needs,
She gave to you all that she had,
Can you make her a little glad?
Not all have the blessing called mother
Like she is, there is none other
So give here your time, all else can wait
Show her your love before it’s too late.
For a day will come when she will be far
Yet she’ll be with you, whenever you are.
