She took the kick and smiled,
and wondered if your tiny feet got hurt!
She slowly caressed you and sang you a lullaby,
Even before you were born!
She was the first protector,
When you wailed first – she was your solace,
When you were hungry – she was your source,
She gave her life force to you.
Then you grew up,
She nourished you, cherished you;
And made you feel great –
One day a year is not sufficient to thank her,
for making a home for you for those 10 months
and then making her home yours for long after;
may you remember her forever!
