She’s the one

She was keeping me safe, even before my heart was moulded
Though I wasn’t born yet, keeping me secure was her utmost priority.
All the sleepless nights she sacrificed for me seem impossible to pay off.
Illness in my childhood days became one of her worst nightmares.
For her, stress was defined as my half-done homework.
Her voice was the only thing I woke up to.
When I cried, her heart hurt; when I fell, she felt my pain.
She became my strength when I was at my weakest.
The time came when I was turning into a woman, and she was the one who taught me how to.
Words seem little to express what she is to me,
But I just want to be with her from my foremost sigh till my last.
