In my journey of motherhood.. I thank you my mom…

In my journey of the motherhood
I think of you mom
In my journey of the motherhood
I thank you mom

With every sock I turn, Sorting laundry
With every toy I gather down, Cleaning house
I appreciate you my mom

With every attempted paperback,
On the couch or on the bed,
On a busy day or lazy weekend
Our son asking questions, Interrupting
Till I answer back

With every “What’s for dinner?”
And the grumbles When I answer
After hours of Brainstorming menus,
Shopping for food, unloading groceries,
Preparing home cooked meals,
I sympathize my mom.

With every hard demand-
“Please ask red tractor to pass again on road”
“Could I eat only Chutney for dinner?”
I ache for my mom
Perched on the edge of my white daybed,
Hands clasped as I tried to answer

With every tough punishment
That leaves our son in tears
And the guilt I feel
For making him cry –
He trust me,
He wants my approval,
He wants me to see him perfect –
I understand my mom

With every laugh at the dinner table
That builds till i can’t stop
And tears stream down my cheeks,
And my jaw and face hurt
From smiling so hard,
I am thankful to my mom who taught me well…!!!
