Mother's Day 2


Have you ever sat at home all day?
Day after day?
Week after week?
Seeing only those 3 people and not anyone else?

Have you ever felt the emptiness on not being who you used to be?
Like being the star of every party?
The most popular girl in town?
The teacher everyone loved?
The one who threw the grandest parties?
The one who made dolls and dresses for little girls?

Have you ever felt completely dependent on another?
Not being able to do things on your on?
Things you could do earlier?
Like drive?
Play sports?

Have you ever known that this is how its going to be?
If not worse?
That there is no getting better?

Have you ever seen your life slip away when you've just been given the best gift ever?
Have you tried pushing away someone you love more than life itself because you think you can't take care of her?

Have you ever smiled through it all?
And still thanked God for the life he has given you?
Have you ever said 'I'm better than you' when you are at your worst?

Have you ever fought with all your might against all odds?
'Coz you love life the way it is?

Have you ever been Amma?
