A Wonderful Woman

She’s a wonderful woman – that’s all I can say,

Let’s us make our mistakes and find our own way.

No protests when we make our housework easy,

With routines and ideas that would drive her crazy.

She teaches us her wisdom when we’re sinking or stuck,

And we bring some change when she’s gotten into a rut.

The old and the new – they slowly merge,

And become tradition over the years.

Time will pass by and we’ll all grow older,

And that wonderful woman will need to live closer.

Then, we’ll need some routines that keep the space,

To keep the love alive during this different phase.

A Saas and a Bahu, but not like on TV,

Space and routines for togetherness.

With love.

And with freedom.

To new ways and new traditions.

To the women who care for their elderly without losing themselves.

May we all follow in their footsteps.

 

PS : A Saas is a Mother-in-law in Hindi. And a Bahu a Daughter-in-law.
