Even before I was born you were taking care of me and the day I will die is the day you will stop worrying for me. Everything today I am is because of you, everything good in me is because you taught it to me and everything bad in me is because I failed to live up to your teachings. There were times when you did not slept, only because I was feeling ill. You stayed hungry only so that I could get the extra piece of bread, you worked all day long so that I could have a better life, you bought me the new toy and sublimed your own joys. I was weak you made me strong, you are always right I am always wrong and you were there for me when I was born. I truly believe that all my worries, all my troubles can vanish with your one prayer and I also know that there is never a day when you are not praying for me. If my life today is worth living, it is because you are a part of it. If today I can look the world in the eye its because you taught me to stand up and fight. You held my hands when I could not walk, when I could not even speak you understood my thoughts and all my battles you have fought. Nothing can be compared to you, no one can be you, there is just one you and I feel blessed to have you! If you would not have been with me, I would have become everything but me.
I know I am not the best a mother could dream, there is so much more that you deserve. I know most of the days I let you down, I know many times I am the reason you frown. I know ma I am nothing you wanted me to be, I know my behavior is not what it should be! All the shortcomings in me is because of my own mistakes and I will try to live up to your expectations, whatever it takes. This lifetime is too less to express my love for you, words are too less to show how I feel for you. All I can do is come home today, give you a hug and let my tears flow in front of you. Mom, I am sorry! for every time I have hurt you, for every time I did things wrong. I know it is selfish to say so but please forgive me.
“Happy Birthday MA”
