Random musings of a wandering soul

>Remembering You


You came home from hostel one weekend and got to know that you are getting engaged the week after..
You had seen him once, and none in his family…
You obeyed your father, no questions asked, came into a house ruled by a strong matriarch..
You were so innocent, you believed everyone and everything…
You went through so much, but was never without a smile on your face..
Your hope was in your kids and when one left, you could never get over it…
You, who hadn’t seen the world wished for your little ones to conquer it…
You, who had never graduated, insisted that your precious ones turn professionals…
You welcomed their friends, boys and girls alike, in a town known for being conservative…
You didn’t stand in the way of the elder one when she wanted to settle first, and got the younger one married off, in a family where it was sacrilege..
You were the one everyone turned to, for everything..
You, the helpless,turned strong when crushed…
You knew what each one of us wanted to say without us uttering a word…
You, who took care of everyone, forgot to take care of yourself…
You left us alone and went off just like that…
You will remain in our hearts for ever….

(Dedicated to all daughters who have their mothers with them – love them all you can, pamper them to the core and be with them whenever you can, while you can. I am thankful that I could before it was too late)

p.s – Entered this for blogadda’s mother’s day contest. Thanks Uma for letting me know about this.
