You must be a ...

You have all the answers,
still sometimes you are speechless.
You are worried, depressed, excited,
confident, contended and delighted.

You are a child, an adult, a preacher,
guilty, a realist,a dreamer,
conscious that little eyes are judging you
and unconsciously imitating you.

You have a responsibility,to pass on
the traits like honesty and time management.
Have to set an example.
But you too are human!!

There is always a prayer
on your lips.
And the list goes on....
Hey..you must be a Mom

Manish said...

Very nicely expressed, but I can swear that this poem was not there on your blog on thursday, as the date on your blog suggests :-)

Probably you had started to write this on thursday it self, and finished it by friday evening or saturday.

But like anonymous said, fathers are not far behind. Though me not a father yet :-)

sorry forgot to add my name to my earlier comment about being mom myself...zilch

vandy said...

Hi Deepak.
Thanks for the adjectives...All this Zarranawzi does make my day.

I showed Gul's comment to my daughter (10 yr old)and told her that quotation
That God can not be with each child(physically) so He made Moms.
She laughed and said that this is exaggaration.
And then As RED said 'One has to be a mom to feel that way!

vandy said...

@ Hi Manish,Thanks.
I posted it on friday.Some 'setting' must be wrong..

Vini said...

This poems very well written vandy! I think one part of every parent is always thinking about the child - whatever one's doing. It's always in the sub-conscious mind.

Hey Vandy, the poem reminds me of SRK 'Mere desh ki har maa aap jaisi hai' dialogue in Veer Zaara. I am sure what you wrote is as true of you .. as your mom.

BTW who is the cartoonist? Pran, Sudhir Dar or someone else?
