Dear Mother, I want to be like you
They say, you are unique
And don’t have to be like any other
But deep down in my heart
I crave to be like my mother
I want that strength and patience
She secretly holds inside her
The control she has over her fear and anger
And making love, her biggest armour
She is all the people
A doctor, philosopher and the teacher
Is there anything she can’t do?
No, I can’t think of anything either!
What makes her so perfect
Her sacrifices or the compassion?
How come she doesn’t get tired
Even after getting all the things done?
O mother, you are the only one
Who can teach me to be like you
But how do I get your powers you will get while teaching me
As all of them will be new
You live with all the rules
And still rule your house
How do you play so many roles
A mother, a daughter and a spouse
Is there any scheme of being a magician
Once you have your own children?
I have so many questions and
And still answers to none.
Even if I become
Five percent of the person you are
It will be my biggest achievement
From which I am very very far!
