My Mother's Hand

“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.
