my mother


miss I do
my mother
she who cared with love
without a selfish thought
in her heart, only care
to all her children
she who as always fair

in her eyes, sometimes
saw I glimpses of pain
when her children misunderstood her
and blamed her, of selfish gain

selfish : no a mother can never be
with her own blood
her children nourishes she
to feed the child hungry she stays
ignoring her personal desires
for child’s education she pays

my mother
her calming touch
her soothing voice
her loving eyes
all she ever wanted was
that I fulfill my potential
and touch the skies
thank you mother

physically with me, you may be no more
but with every passing moment
in my heart
you and your
love filled teachings
grow more and more
