A tribute to the first place I ever lived – My MOM, my HERO

by Anuradha Desikan from Chennai, India

 

You have a strength that no one sees,

A generous impact of a gentle breeze;

 

Sometimes you could come across as a person too docile,

Yet at an hour of need, you make a crisis seem so facile:

 

Your unforced habit of being aesthetic,

In a mundane routine so ever hectic;

 

Your hugs are nothing but warm,

And your smiles gleam like luster with charm;

 

You pour your entire soul and energy,

Without wanting anything in return;

 

The virtues you have imbibed in me are firm,

From you to me, to my daughter and to hers, a long term;

 

Putting my gratitude in words is inadequate,

For there is nothing under the sun your love can equate.
