An Ode to a Special Mother (Indian Independence Day)

An Ode to a Special Mother (Indian Independence Day) ode

Of beauty, culture and history you are the perfect paradigm,
As you resonate through our hearts like a gentle chime.
It’s your birthday for the sixty fifth time,
We belong to you, just as words do to a mime.

Many hardships and trials you face,
Yet carrying forward with poise and grace,
Your tribulations we are obligated to erase,
While your bright future is ours to chase.

Just as a lamp with an eternal glow,
Our dedication to you must always flow,
Love, integrity and peace we shall always show,
Swiftly cutting through the negatives, like an arrow through a bow.

As your children, we pay you homage,
As you lovingly take us to the 65th page,
Our lives are an ode to you as you age,
We wear your colours proud, like bright plumage
