I’ll be there for you


When the path ahead is unclear and the going is tough,

When the road ahead is strewn with stones rough,

Hold my hand and trust my instinct,

I’ll take you through life, on to paths distinct.


When you are depressed and are feeling sad

When the things around you all appear to be bad

Lean on my shoulder, cry a bit on it

Put all your troubles on my lap, whilst near me you sit.


When your brain is muddled and thinking is fuzzy

When you believe you are going to go stark, raving crazy.

Whisper your troubles into my ear

And I’ll guide you onto thoughts, crystal clear.


When you are confused & appear to lose your focus

When things around you seem to be in hocus-pocus

Close your mind and lend me your thoughts

Let me be your brain, let me call the shots.


When your eyes appear to un-see, what’s clear as a picture?

When everything around you is losing its structure.

Just close your eyes and let yourself be

I promise, I’ll be there for you, for you I shall see.


If ever in doubt, ever in an ache,

Always remember and this truth never shake;

I’ll always be there, just being your shadow

Will never leave you, in misery, to wallow.


Born of my womb, we are connected,

By threads that for the world could well be undetected.

Our bond shall triumph over the biggest travail,

The fates may rail against us, but to no avail.


My love shall shield you from all harm,

It will protect you like a lucky charm.

As your mother, this much I do vow

To this strength of motherhood, I bow.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
