“Life doesn’t come with a Manual – it comes with a Mother

Life doesn’t come with Angels – it comes with a Daughter”

 

Oh my reflection, I am here for you

Life is tough darling, but so are you!

You will outgrow my lap, but never my heart

Being your mother has been, quite an art!

My little wanderer, your eyes full of adventure

You are little tornado but also my thirst quencher

Before it begins, you heal my pain

I want you as my daughter, time and again

I wish you love, I wish you laughter

Oh my reflection, no sorrows there after

The day you come face to hurdles

Remember our talks and snuggly cuddles

Fight the demons and win your battle

Face them in the eye and don’t be a tattle

I will hold your hands until I breathe

The day I am gone, you have to be on your feet

You are my heart, you are my soul

The source of my smile, my happiness as a whole

Keep shining oh beautiful one, and fly like a kite

I will be your shadow now, later you be my light

Oh my reflection, I am here for you

Life is tough darling, but so are you!
