Mumble was she doing, and he kept on listening,
they two had their space, yet in vigilance.
She kept her head on his shoulder,
he cris-crossed his fingers on her curls.
She shared her entire day with him,
he kept on humming in his tone.
She said am tired, I need to sleep,
he opened his arm and shared his warmth.
She dozed off as if she cared any,
he stared at her as if she was a beauty title.
She woke with the best sleep ever,
he smiled with the tired arm ever.

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.
