you raised me as a princess.
that wealthy love I could never pay for
was dearest than the quarrels we got into.
Your care, your concern for me was unmeasurable
and we did not get a note of time
when we created a bond of a mother & daughter
at a tender age of 10.
Forgive me for the times I yelled at you,
or went beyond my limit to prove myself
but I never meant to be hurtful to you
because I knew that you were breathing for me.
Had you been here today, the things would have varied
the natures’ would have been different.
They might not have appreciated what you did
but I acknowledged and I did.
The uncountable days on the hospital beds,
those restless days of heaving
you were with me throughout all,
but I acknowledged. I did.
Had you been here today to see me as a bride
Things would have been different.
I yearned to get a glimpse of you one last time,
but am told that you are resting in heaven up there
blessing me in invisible forms of energy.
I know I will miss you for the time
I am alive. But we will meet one day
where I’ll sob holding you to infinity.
