Jab maan ban gai, 

Samajh na aaya!

   Kya hota hai maan banna,

   Kya hoti hai mamta ki bhavna!!

Bada kar dia tumhe yun hi,

Apna bachpan sath me jee lia yun hi!

      Jab samajh me aaya mamta ka matlab,

      Bahut bade ho chuke the tum tab tak!!

Ek alag hi rishta jiya humne,

Ek sathi ka rishta jiya jaise!

        Badi imaandary se ye rishta nibhaya tumne,

        Mery tamam ummeedon ko poora kia tumne!!


Didn’t understand, 

When I became a mother!

        What is it like to be a mother,

        What is the feeling of a mother!!

Grew you up,

Lived my childhood with you!

       When understood the meaning of maternal love,

       You were too big by then!!

We lived a different relationship,

We lived a friendly relationship!

        You lived this relationship with great sincerity,

        You fulfilled all my hopes!!

    1. Thank you so much Aparna. This is my reality. When I became a mother at 18, I didn’t even have those maternal feelings for my new born son. I was just irritated by all those pains and problems which every new mother has to face. This poem is straight from heart. Today I have more than maternal feelings for my son. He is a friend, mentor and son to me. God bless him always.😊🌹🥰 🥰
