The warmth in my mother's lap

Dear Mother,
Thank you for being so kind and generous to me,
You've given me the best of everything,
No one like you did I ever see.

I felt exhausted after returning from school,
You were the one who asked me how my day was,
And then you cuddle me and press my head,
You made me feel so relaxed, bringing all my worry to a pause.

What could have been warmer than your lap?,
There's so much of relief when I lay in it,
I forget all my pain,
It's just like a candle, in darkness, which is lit.

You solve most of my problems,
And prevent me from doing the same mistakes,
You've been an idol for me,
Yo fulfill all my demands, no matter what it takes.

There's so much I can learn from you,
You've been so calm,
No matter what happens,
You've accepted me with open arms.

I cannot express my love in words,
It's deeper than the ocean,
It's farther than the horizon,
With all your love and care, you have filled my heart till its brim.

Mumbai, India
