Mum, Mummy, Amma!

She is a nurse when you need healing,
A teacher when you need preaching,
God when you need blessing,
Mother when you need care.

Once I demanded for a “Kadhi” when I was at office,
she took the ingredients from the vendor below.
Prepared the delicacy before I was home,
love she has cannot be quantified.

She dreams of a better future for you everyday,
plans for the next day every moment.
Prays for you with each heartbeat,
counts your achievements adding a few herself.

She said NO to a dress which I asked for,
saved what she had from her monthly budget.
Skipped her birthday Saree,
and bought the same dress the month next.
