My Mom’s A Superhero

Loved this one so sharing it with you all. Stirs the strings of many a hearts.

Frank Solanki

I never realised
She loved me selflessly
So blind of me to ignore
When she loved me endlessly

She never ever got tired
Did all her work on time
Helped me when I needed
When I couldn’t find a rhyme

She never had a wrestling match
Still I know that she was strong
She was wise but never showed it
Knew what’s right and wrong

She knew where everything’s kept
She had the sharpest memory
She had but just a simple heart
But never an injury

Now the heaven’s shining
While Earth has lost its glow
How did I fail to realise
My mom’s a superhero!

ज़िक्र छेड़कर मेरे इतिहास के पन्नों का

उसे कुछ मज़ा शायद आया होगा
