Wrote these lines on the Eve of my wife’s birthday. Equally applicable to all the ladies of the world who make their home as well as the world a better place.

To the lady of the house

Who cooks and cleans and

Looks after her kids

While working a full time job

To the lady, who toils all day

Without any leave or holiday

Who’s only joy is house kept warm

For everyone to come back and rest

To the lady, who doesn’t fall ill

Even if sick she won’t make a fuss

But pamper the sick and tired ones

Feed and clean them till they are well

To the lady, who at drop of the hat

Cooks and serves any dish on the spot

Keeps all of us, a satiated lot

Heartfelt gratitude for being in our life.
