“Oh God, you created me, gave me a womb where I was secure,
I grew in the womb in peace and with nicest care.
Even before I could come out of her womb and my life could start
I felt blessed to be so close to her heart.
Oh, I felt so comfortable in her hands
I was too small but did understand.
Her hugs made me feel so warm
I could sleep peacefully in her arm.
Holding her fingers, I learnt to walk
I don’t know what, but she used to talk and talk.
Her hands nurtured me with a lot of care and affection
A beautiful feeling of some magical connection.
Holding my mother’s hand, went to school with joy
Her hand on my head is a blessing that I rejoice.
Her love for me poured into my life like rain
Oh lord, let this flood of love forever remain.
I am now grown up, but whenever I am in a low state of mind,
My mother lends her hand to help me all the time.
This is what I call love simply unconditional
This is Pure and exceptional love, not fictional.
Whenever I am in pain then or now,
She reaches me to take my pain away, I wonder how?
Her hands wiped my tears even before it rolled down
Whenever she is around, I feel like a queen with a crown.
