Mom

Mom

it was not so long ago, when you were holding my little hand, guiding every step of my way
every moment, was a moment to remember
a moment so fun, so dear
i learned to navigate the world through your gentle hands, through your brilliant mind,
through your compassionate heart
ours was a “love – hate” affair but never was there a time that you surrender

how long has it been?
i can’t remember, i really can’t
my ageing mind won’t wanna work backwards
won’t even wanna work on dates, and i think
it doesn’t matter, for now, i am in charge
of tiny little hands too, the ones whose lives
depend on how i will guide them through thierΒ  ways, and i can’t help but be grateful, for the mother that you were to me when i was little

i am the mother that i am now because of you

    And that is how the cycle of good parenting works – of course that is also how the cycle of bad parenting happens too. A wonderful tribute to your mother and to all good mothers!
