Your love for me is so tender.
I am enamoured.
You wouldn’t let anyone take a plate, cup, seat or a sip from me.
You’re my defender, my protector.
Making sure my place in the world is secure and you’re barely 3.
If I arrive, nothing else matters to you.
Maa has arrived.
There is song.
There is laughter.
There is excitement.
And on my luckiest of days, there is a run.
A run upon a path that leads directly to me.
A love like this?
I never knew.
Oh I saw it in your father when he stood against all for me.
Fearlessly and without a shade of doubt.
But that love.
I never expected from you.
Had hopes from you.
You owe me nothing my child.
And here you are.
Giving me your whole world, upon your little steel plate.
I got this for you.
