Dedicated to the Superwoman in my life, my lovely Amma!

Happy Mother's Day & Happy Birthday!

My Mom's birthday is on the 9th of May

The day after we celebrate Mother's Day

Which happens to fall on the 8th of May

But I want her to be happy every single day


Her beautiful name is Selvarani

For short, everyone calls her Rani

In my mother tongue Tamil, Rani means Queen

Which became meaningless, her life unforeseen


She cooks for me daily

She even does my laundry

Cleans the house constantly

To help with my depression and anxiety


She has never taken a day off sick

She's undeniably a Superwoman

She can never be replaced as she's unique

She's a Goddess in the body of a human


She has sacrificed so much in life

She has always put me first

Her life always came second to mine

She's always the best, even at her worst


I never deserved a Mother like her

I've made her cry so many times

I hate myself for hurting her

Because I love her, although she may have missed the signs


This poem is dedicated to my one and only Amma

I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day and Birthday

I'm so grateful to have a Mother like you Ma

May God make all your problems go away
