In life’s enigma, my mom is an enormous gift,
Her love, a universal flare, and so my soul uplifts,
Dazzled, ever since I woke to see that ever-glowing face,
Offering motherhood with a spice of pain, surely, I can’t replace.
Embracing me as nobody has,
Like a blazing sun with its celestial solace,
Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him once relayed,
‘Paradise lies beneath the feet of mothers’, he conveyed.
With every simple action, the character starts to mold
like an ancient relic preparing to make history; take note.
Every mother is a journey towards a heartbeat
And if you decide to follow, it’s glee you shall meet.
