Butterfly

She is the calm between a hurricane
The rainbow after heavy rains,
The oxygen to living life alone
Has solutions to all our troubling pains.

She is the Light bringer in our darkest hour
The joy giver above all our doubts,
She cares like nobody else will ever do
She smiles even though her heart may pout.

Stands firm like a pillar of strength
No matter if you hit rock bottom hard,
She can see no pain in your eyes
She’ll hold you up and teach you to fly.

Mom, Mother, Amma or Aai
The one person to whom you cannot ever lie,
Working hard day and night
To then help fulfil your dreams so high.

She will nurture and care for you
Until the day you transform,
From a little caterpillar into a beautiful Butterfly.
