English Poetry

When those tender eyes look upon us, full of worry
It evanesces to relief, if only for a moment
Then comes the onslaught, concern behind anger
The next instant, full of love, wordlessly checking on us
I wonder if anyone can feel worry, relief, anger, all because of love
But the only exception...

The one who lights up the darkest of nights
Silently inspiring, enlightening, mesmerizing.
The guiding star, a master of every task
From wrong to right, so gentle, yet so strong
Multitasking and versatile
Quietly supporting from behind

Has seen me laugh, has seen me cry
And throughout it, always by my side
Was there for the ups and stayed for the downs
Gave me many smiles and chased away my frowns
And anytime I need a favor, always seems to be there
Though how I never still understand

Helps me succeed, even when it wasn’t an option
Stands up for me, even when everyone is against
Maa...
I want her to know that I appreciate her
And that I am aware of all that she does
Though I may not have told her this
I often wish I was more like her

Maybe one day, I’ll really be...
