Aadyam oru ilam thalodal aayi, kunju nerukil pathinju njan
Manju raavinte viriyaayi ninte mei pothinjathu njaan
[In the beginning as a soft caress, I impressed on the crown of your small head
I covered your body like a blanket on chilly foggy night]
Innolam kaaval irunnu njan
nizhal aayi nin chaare…nee ariyaathe
[Everyday until today, I safeguarded you
as a shadow near you… without you knowing]
Kaathorthaal nee kelkkum shwasangal, nin amma
Nee thedum…. amma
[If you listen closely, the breaths you hear…(is) your mother
The one you search for… (your) mother]
