With closed eyes and a palpitating heart I was securely floating,
Deep inside my mother’s womb less sure about everything,
Then, I sadly stepped into this world with a spell of crying,
But soon my Mother’s warmth curtailed my tearful beginning.
I slowly began to see all around me lying under her arm,
She always brought happiness to me with her incessant charm,
She constantly ensured that I’m not left behind with any qualm,
Creeping under her shadow always kept me warm.
Under your thoughtful upbringing, I began to rise steadily,
Failure did come near me at times but I kept pushing hardly,
For every progress I made, I saw her smile immensely,
And I wish to keep that curve on her face permanently.
Reciprocating the love you’ve shown would take me more than a lifetime,
Your ever-loving son,
