Happy Mother’s Day to everyone that plays the role of a mother.
yours is a nation without any border
you love and protect without any bother
you think first of others without any order
a source of infinite resourcefulness
that’s left me awestruck, and in wonder
of a beautiful goddess called mama.
you are the thousand tears
in search of a smile on my face
the hunger of a stomach that’s feed
with the happiness in my voice
you are the anchored hope
that is set to sail my ship afloat
the vision of many lofty dreams
kept burning in your hallowed heart.
you are a mighty nation
with immeasurable depth of love
built upon height of impeccable virtues
and strong tower of values and servitude
you are the whispers of reasoning
that nurtures in all seasons
mama is the strong foundation
that makes any house, a lovely home.
