Nine months of intensive care in her womb sacrificing her pleasure but enjoying every moment of her treasure has given me safe passage into this world of umpteen wonder
Cried I did on entry, but she ensured that I smile all the way till my exit
such was her Love and compassion I never could understand her or bothered to know her empathy
I was only a seed when she sowed me she ensured I grow up tall with root deep enough not to get uprooted easily by nature’s fury
I was ensured timely food of manure and water and she always guarded me like a shadow and made sure I grow healthy and strong enough to take care of me and my branches
As I grew from strength to strength my arrogance too grew leap and bound
I could not see the hand which nurtured me crumbling and decaying slowly
