I was nothing in my mother’s womb,
Nothing as I grew.
My arms and legs grew bigger.
My heart enveloped still.
With the love my parents gave me,
The love that made me whole,
And made me smile and laugh and rise,
Through all of life’s turns and folds.
My life grew grim as I faced it,
And I thought- nothing could relieve me..
And then I felt the warmth within,
The warmth of my mother’s love.
For long, I thought it had been lost,
And now, I see it clearly.
It has made me the man I am today,
And still hangs around me dearly.
