To a child the mother is everything.
She is empathy, emotion, realization,
She is abode of the fragrance of the flowers of life
She is the strong shoulder with gentle hands,
She is the axis on which a Child’s world revolves
Mother is the sweet stream in a desert
She is the happy cradle of a crying child.
Mother is everything ,
She is the world, she is the universe .
The above lines are loosely based on the poem ‘Maa’ in Hindi by Om Vyas ‘OM’
The original in Hindi is as shown below.
