She doesn’t take me to the top of the world,
But ensures that my feet remain firmly on the ground.
She doesn’t make me feel like a model,
But she certainly brings out the best in me.
She never said “I care the world for you“,
But her helping hand is there when I need it.
She doesn’t promise me the stars from heaven,
But I know she will travel a thousand miles to be with me.
With her, there are no do’s and don’ts,
Because she accepts me as I am.
With all my shortcomings and flaws,
With her, I am just me.
Staying away from home had never been easy,
But she was always there, no matter what.
Thanking her will never be enough,
Rather, she deserves someone better than me.
And with this in my mind,
I strive harder and even harder to be that better ‘me’ for her.
Miss you Maa. You are absolute ❤️.
