During this lockdown, when we are miles apart in two different states with no way to meet each other, I regret all those times when you were here with me and I was busy with over-stressed work life, and spending time with the professional “family.”
It is only thanks to video calls that I get to feel your warmth virtually, and you can sense my helplessness.
Me being 31, and you being 61 is only a statistical data, as I starve for your love and touch like an infant, and you worry about my sleep, health, and diet.
Now, when no one repeatedly forces me to go to bed and asks me to take my meal, I miss the way you cared.
I wish, I could have shared my feelings with you irrespective of any special occasion or circumstances, but guess sometimes situations brings out the most realisations.
I want to tell you that you are everything to me and also my first everything.
You are my first home as I grew in your womb,
As you chose to bring me into this world.
My first breath and heartbeat,
Are the first gift from you to me.
Soon after I opened my eyes,
You are my first beautiful sight.
You are the strength, behind my first step.
Who was always there to behold.
You are the sound in my voice,
You are the first word that I spoke “Maa !”
You are my first scholar,
Since my knowledge, is all your teachings & preaching.
You are my first healer,
Because whenever in pain, I take your name, “Maa!”
You are my first Bff with all ears,
Because with you, I share, my every secret, happiness and fears.
Maa….. You are my first love and first possession,
My first memory, my first companion,
My first impression of perfection.
Maa….. you are and will always be my first everything!
Your loving daughter,
