About Mothers


In most things I am free
to make my choice
but still she tries to guide me
with her look, with her voice

and I wonder why mothers
keep on bothering?
And to think of it, it isn’t surprising,
but till eternity they do the mothering thing?

    Absolutely! Once a mother, always a mother. As I constantly tell my daughter...I'm always going to be your Mom and nothing can ever change that..not even death. Then she gives me the old eye roll! (Report) Reply
