A Mother’s Predicament.

There was a girl
miles away from home
missing her mom ,every minute of her day.
The way her mom smiled, the way she woke her up
the strong cup of coffee every morning
brightening not just her mood, but her entire day.
If only her mom could come over,
how happy would she be!

The way her mom could read her thoughts,
she knew every little thing about her.
The comfort she gained,
by looking at her face, was just unparalleled.
She needed her mom for everything
Anything that her mom said would make her happy,
Anything that her mom did, would make her happy.
She was so possessive of her mom and
did not mind telling it out.
She loved her mom so much
she was missing her mother badly
And one fine day, her mom said she would visit her for a few days

There was a girl
So close to her home, yet far away in her thoughts.
Her mom had to be away for a while.
The very thought shook her.
She had never been away from her mother for days together.
Even if she was, she was elsewhere.
She was never alone at home.
Home is not home without mom.

She knew she would miss talking endlessly with her mom,
she would miss her mom listening patiently to her,
to everything that she had to say.
She would miss fighting with her mom
on which ice cream to buy and which pizza to choose.
She would miss coming back home  to see her mom
she would miss the way her mom surprised her.
But she knew someone else needed her mom much more than her
and gave her the biggest smile she could muster, given the circumstances

There was a Mother,
she had two daughters.
One was happy because she was coming,
one was sad because she was going
She was happy that she would spend time with her daughter
while she was sad to that she had to leave her other daughter.
On one side she was happy she was going to be of some help
on the other side she was worried how people would manage without her

Her daughters were in just one state. One happy, One sad
But the mother was in a completely different state
She was happy or sad
She was neither happy nor sad.
At times she was happy. At times she was sad.
She worried about one daughter when she was here
She worries about the other daughter when she is away.

A Mother is never partial.
Her love is boundless
Even when it comes to two daughters
She makes sure she plays fair
Gives undivided attention to both of them
Makes both of them feel special
Sometimes they feel they are more pampered than the other
But only the mother truly knows
that she loves them both equally
And stays true to her heart

Love you Ma. Missing you !
