For 9 months, complete 9 months,
I was like a farmer trying to make my belly as fecund as possible,
Cause I was growing a beautiful entity in there,
And it was you; definitely it was you.
It was like a package of happiness came showering upon me,
When I saw the first glimpse of yours,
I thought I need nothing else.
While you were having your loveliest childhood,
I could spend the whole day playing with you,
Your charming face would charm me back,
Your adorable smile,
Your soft skin and those little fingers,
Everything was so delightful,
My contentment, joy and cheerfulness would overflow indeed.
There were no moments of ultimate peace, tranquility and calmness
Other than the instant while you would suck my breast.
You started taking footsteps,
You started talking,
Your obscure words would entertain me more,
The moment you first said, “mom”,
God! That was the best moment of my life.
You grew up more,
You were admitted to school,
You cried a lot,
My heart nearly broke up,
Seeing tears in your eyes and running down your pulpy cheeks,
But it was your future ahead of you,
For which I had to be so hard-hearted.
You completed school, high school and college,
I thought you were done with your studies now,
You’ll start working,
Take the responsibility,
And assist us financially as well,
Cause we were no longer like before,
Your dad retired and,
I was no more than a miserable housewife,
We had a bunch of expectations from you.
You were still not done,
With your studies,
You were still enjoying every bit of your life.
You applied for other country,
You said that there’s nothing you could do here,
Not enough scopes,
I advised you to make yourself better first but you didn’t listen.
You made the decision,
I couldn’t revoke.
I wanted you to be here with me so badly,
But it was your dream,
It was your career and life ahead of this,
You needed to pursue your studies,
How could I stop you?
How would I actually?
I had to swallow my tears,
When you left,
When you flew.
Every expectations I had started to fed away,
You made me sure of helping me financially from there,
But who cares,
If you’re not here,
When we are weak,
When we can’t work,
When we feel so lazy even to cook for ourselves.
I remember your childhood days,
When we worked as much as we could to deliver you all the happiness in the world that you deserve,
We tried to save every penny to fulfill your needs,
We stayed with an empty stomach just to fed you up,
We were there for you every time when you needed,
Cause at that time you were weak and we were stronger enough to hold on to you.
Now that you’ve grown up,
You’ve became stronger enough,
And no longer need us,
You are out there doing your own business,
But maybe you didn’t realize,
This is the time when we are weak and,
We need you to hold onto us.
Instead of yourself,
You left this pet dog with us,
Thinking that it will fill up the void that you created,
Well, thank you
At least it’s giving us the inseparable company that we need.
That cash you’ve been sending us,
What are we going to do with it?
What should we buy? Happiness? Offspring love and care?
Will it work for us?
By the way,
We can’t even visit the money transfer to collect your money.
Its you what we need not money,
Its your arms what we need to be by our side not money,
Its your love and care what we need not money.
You don’t worry son,
Don’t get mad at me,
I just want to make sure that I’m not complaining,
Its just the emotions are overwhelming me and,
I couldn’t find anyone to share with,
Lonely life you know,
None there ready to get bored being with us.
You are my blood,
You are the one we have,
So, your happiness matters more than anything else,
If you are happy there with your life,
Then sure we are,
Just a picture to see your smile,
And a phone call to hear your voice,
Would be enough for us to die in peace.
Stay happy my child!
Our blessings are always with you.
