You braved my first journey,
And guided me from darkness to light.
Although exhausted and sore,
You embraced me with a smile.
Oblivious to the agony I caused you,
I sought your undivided attention,
I ungratefully consumed your nights,
Sadly, most of your days too.
After years of being your shadow,
I grew up to be a foolish teenager.
I was demanding yet again,
But this time, it was not your attention.
I suddenly wanted my space,
And thought you would never understand me,
But, how could I forget?
Only you understood me when I was just a little mime.
I now laugh at my follies,
And regret earnestly too,
I wonder what would become of me,
If I was not born to you.
Can love be this unconditional?
Can God disguise as mortal?
Yes, I have felt the supernatural Mamma,
I have seen my God in You.
