mother and daughter
Farheen's Corner, poetry


A knowing glance

A listening ear

You always know how to comfort me

Through all my fears.

A big bear hug

A loving smile

You always know when I need you

Even from across the miles.

A soft hand

A warm touch

You always have my back

Even when things get rough.

You’re always there

To show me the way

To steer me right

To watch me succeed.

From beginning to the end

You’re by my side

There is no other

You are my mother.

–Author’s Note: Although I wrote this in honour of my mother, this goes out to all the mothers (and aunts, sisters, cousins and friends who are like a mother) on this special day and every day. Happy Mother’s Day!
