You Were Right Mother


It was that time of the year when I was at home day in and out in chilly weather. Thanks to the holiday time, it made me contemplate the artistic streak in me. It was then that I wrote a poem. So, this is what I started with.

I opened my eyes, cried and cried,
It was so annoying but she was by my side.

I toddled around, got myself hurt,
She took me in her lap, offered all comfort.

I grew more and quarreled with her at most times,
She sat all alone and cried at nights.

When she stopped me from going out late at night,
I got irritated and cursed with all might.

When I went away to study and she wasn’t around,
I was happy at first for I didn’t feel bound.

But then I realized, in this world of betrayal and lying,
She is the only one whose love is undying.

When everybody else considered me a failure,
She cheered me up, she was my only savior.

Her love had no boundaries, it was me who didn’t realize,
I was wrong the whole time not at all wise.

Her care is enduring, like none other,
Now I know, that all this time, you were right Mother.
