ODE TO MOM

What would this world be without your vibrance?
This household without your tenderness?
This family sans your devotion?
Me in the absence of your affection?

You’ve got more than character
You’ve got verve, got candor
You don’t do ordinary, boring love
It’s either silent love or tough love

I’ve grown to be stubborn and spunky
So much so that at times I fight even Mommy
And for that, I’ll never stop apologizing
Selfless, you deserve no less than a child so revering

But I could also be laidback and funny
Able to carry myself around uncaringly
Others never let their kids go un-chaperoned
But you let me do my thing, look after my own

They would think you don't pay attention
Truth is I've become my best version
All because you never confined your child to rust
The greatest yield of our maternal bond is trust

What would this world be without your vibrance?
This household without your tenderness?
This family sans your devotion?
Me in the absence of your affection?


Happy birthday, Mommy!
