The poet tries to remember his mother and pen down his feelings towards his mother.How much he misses her and how he loves her is the soul of the poem.

 I am,

Because she is,

The goddess for me,

She is my mother.


Her shadow will always be with me,

Her blessings will always be with me,

I care losing nothing,

Except her,

I care for none's love,

Except her's.


In her,

I see the God,

Her words are nectars of heaven,

Her life is life of legend ,

She has,

The unquestionable legacy .


I worship her ,

"O! thou mother,

Never leave me alone,

Your lap is heaven to me,

Heaven to me."

This is a beautiful,simple expression of love and honor for someone's mother. The simple phrase of "I am...because she is" is very powerful and the emotions expressed within these lines are truly heartfelt and honest. Well-done.
