A Tribute: Happy Birthday Maa

Ponytails to perming.
Henna to streaking
Periods to childbirth.
Approaching thunderstorms
To fallen trees
A flood of emotions
Childhood memories
And emotional saturation
Threatening to overflow
The banks of memories.
I had trained myself
To hold my breath
Coordinating it with yours
Listening to your heartbeat
As I cuddled up beside you
Nestled in the curve of your arm.
Chasing happiness
In a life full of imperfections
Dogged by challenges
Pursuing careers and my passion
I found solace in your company.
Comfort. Consolation. Cheer.
Three words.
One identity.
