Gratitude

Gratitude

You watched me closely
when I took my steps, compelled
by train of thoughts, eagerness
and will, taking this
maiden trip, alone, to school.
Your smile, an epitome of
elegance under
pressure, leading my way and
I adored you, not for your
warm, glancing touches
you have etched on my forehead,
but for hosting me in your
rose womb, where each bead
of your sweat molded my breath,
making me perceive birthing
is a painful task
of women; in the old town
of my dad, thanking is art.
