Sacrifices of a Mother 
Embracing me in her womb
She nurtures me with her love.
No one knows,
She has sacrificed her comfort.
Crooning my favourite lullaby
To bring a smile on my face.
No one knows,
She has sacrificed her sleep.
Dwindling in the abyss of household chores
To fulfil her family needs.
No one knows,
She has sacrificed her dreams.
Festooned with luminous florets
She douses in the monsoon rain.
No one knows,
A lost soul enshrouds
Behind her smiling face.
