I’ve esteemed nobody before so intensely in this way
It’s true, I’m grateful to you & on no account go away.
You’re my first ever companion, well-wisher & guide
None but you have the utmost right to love me or chide.
Fittingly you shroud subterranean anguish that looks lean
I avow, you’re the paramount personality I’ve ever seen
My affliction ails and ecstasy lets you in seventh heaven
For you? Petite: entire earth, headdress amaranth woven
Whatever good in me is your contribution, bad is mine
It is by no means feasible to reimburse my debt to thine!
Your sheer melancholy, I discern, will prod my empathy,
In my bliss, I’ll side with you, without a slender of apathy.
You nourished, schooled, moulded me & nothing is due
Oh my very dear Mother, I loved, love & will be loving you!
