MAMMA, Here for YOU
Looking at you, I knew.
Did Something happened?
Did someone harmed you?
Did they let you go, at end of your first day?
What …. happened ….. I thought?
Who broke my bubbie’s hopes?
With tears held back,
“Mamma, the Boss’s Boss came & said
I am too young for the job”.
What can I say?
My heart ached for you.
Before I step forward & give you a hug,
You took charge,
Extended your hand, grabbed me for a hug
and said with a radiant smile
(reminding me of the sun peaking out from clouds
after torrential monsoon rain)
“Mamma, they did pay me.
Here. This is for YOU.
The $$ I made, my first pay.
Use them Only for You, I love you“.
