Mom, Aai, Maa, Ammi –
Numerous names, one emotion.
I know I mean more to my mother, than what she means to me,
Even though she has my utmost devotion.
My first teacher, my first friend,
I can’t count how many ‘firsts’ she has been for me.
A shoulder to cry on, a caring ear to lend –
She comes to hear my woes, and turns them into glee.
One can be born a lady, but one only becomes a mother,Parvez Hasan
Not by just giving birth, but loving and caring like no one other!
