Love for mothers:
No one in this world,
Could ever take up the job of "Mothers",
Who sacrifice their entire lives,
In bringing up their young ones,
Teaching them what to do and what not to,
What is right and what is not,
Changing all the negative traits to positives,
Appreciate all the little,tiniest things,
That her child does.
And encourage them to do even more and give their best,
Though the entire world discourage them
And make them feel they are nothing.
Mother's are the only ones in this world,
Who does her job expecting nothing in return.
She wants her child,
To qualify to be a good human in this society.
She never categorize success,
As winning silver or gold,
But considers success to be,
Seeing her son/daughter having a heart of gold.
Once she gets married and has a child,
She quits her highly paying,dream job,
Just to take care of we children.
Though she's highly qualified,
And has worked day and night,
During her initial stages of life,
To get placed and work in her dream job.
Gifted and blessed are the ones,
Who have their mother's by their side,
While,there are children who have lost their mother's at a very young age.
You'll never know the value of your mother,
And could never understand,
What all hardships she'd faced in her entire life in bringing up us,
Unless we put ourselves in her shoes.
