It was this moment,

When a new cell was born

Unaware of the odds it had to tackle,

To become a perfect yet imperfect organism,

A battle for survival ensued.

Amidst all this, of what we call an inception,

There was someone who was housing and nurturing,

This perfect yet imperfect organism,

It was the most selfless being in this universe

Mum!!

You took a vow to give everything you got

For the creation of something that you

Longed to see….

Me!!!


You housed me in you for 9 long months

Taking the weight of me for what?

Because you considered me

The most precious thing in this world.

When you brought me into this world

I was just a piece of rock

With all the imperfections

You being my first teacher,

Taught me the way of survival

You beat me, scolded me

I cried, cursed and cut off

But in the end you came and consoled me!

You carved all the values in me

Which define me this very moment

You shaped my future

Just like a ball of wax which becomes a candle

Spreading light in this so-called dark world.

My happiness was always your first priority

Your selflessness has no bounds


I am forever indebted in you for

The love and affection you have showered upon me.

There were scores of people who were always there

To drag me down, push me and play around with my feelings

But there you stood like a guardian angel

Always there to hold me and pull me out of any soup.

Giving you a hug is a feeling of warmth

Letting go of all the egos, sorrows

Inhibitions and negativity

Sprawling inside of me.

Words are not enough to describe you

Your courage, endurance and generosity

Knows no bounds..

A perfect amalgam of all virtue in this world.

Will I ever be able to repay this at all?


No matter whatever great person

I might become some day

The pinnacle of success I might reach

I will always remain

That miniscule cell you created!!

So in the end, I would like to thank you

Also laud you for your mission has been accomplished

Time has come for a role reversal

It’s my turn to look after

The most selfless being in this universe

Mum!!
