By Stuti Saxena Singh
The day my life came into existence, Her life brimmed with luminescence. My mother's hands held me up high, Her ecstasy was ultrahigh. She kissed my forehead and cried with immense joy, Her hands always embraced me with love & care like I was her favourite toy. Holding my little fingers, firmly, she made me walk, Bucking me up with enthusiasm, she made me talk,(Of course, I am sure 'माँ', My Universe, My Mother primarily, was the one talking.)My mother's hands nurtured me with great motivational and spiritual talks,Her supporting hands, like a stoic cliff for me to face all odds. Her hands were my true companion to daringly defy tussles, She cradled my spirits high to fight against ill health hassles. Her hands wore magical treasures. Sprinkled with love, the dishes her hands made were mouthwatering and brought immense pleasure. Her presence was so profoundly divine,Each day pretending to have festivities aligned. Her seraphic persona, fills up my aura with immense happiness, She is and will always be my lucky charm Bringing prosperity and success. Infelicitous fortune wore catastrophic camouflage, Abrupt quietus of Your's drove me to the lamenting stage. Though the stiff got scorched, her aura will remain unperished. She, the true gem, will always be cherished. Assiduous, Conscientious, Meticulous, Charismatic, Dynamic, Empathetic Celestically Beatific. Her soul never aged. My wish of holding her wrinkled, quivering, fragile hands will always remain.
