A poem dedicated to my mother on this Mother’s Day

She lost many before I came,

I chained her in hospital for long nine months.

Though she prayed for a son but found me,

She never complained and hugged me with a Smile.


I was her son, she always said,

My parents brought me up like a fairytale Princess.

Everything was in front even before asked,

I used to call my daddy a magician.


Mum loved me so much, was my best teacher in my childhood,

Became my best friend when I grew up.

She struggled a lot to bring me all,

Wealth; Education And some good time trolls.


One day I wished for a far off land,

She smiled and said ‘yes’ to see me smile.

I chuckled with joy when I came to London,

Couldn’t feel her pain when I left her alone.





My Mum

Love of my life!
Love of my life!

She encouraged and gave me hope all the time,

Never told me her woe and sorrow.

And a day came when I got married,

Her face was gleaming with joy at the venture.


What a symbol of love! What a symbol of love!


She prayed for me day and night,

I realised so late how she survived.

It filled my heart with aches and pains,

I kept her more happy but time kept flying.


My mum was my everything,

I used to sit in her cool shade of affection.

Her breeze of endless love,

Covered me with comfort and joy whenever I felt low.


I never encountered any fear,

With power of her love and soul.

She faced all the challenges,

To give me new life, to make my future bright.


She continued her fight with death for many years,

But all went in vain and this deadly beast won.

Then she left me alone one day to grieve,

Life is such a cruel thing, it doesn’t spare none.

Happy Mother’s Day to my dearest Friend!

I know, You have become a twinkle star,

To shine more brighter, to give me more glow.

To bless me more,

I can feel the dazzle of your eternal light.


I feel your presence with me,

Your soul has centred around my house now.

Never to leave me alone,

Not to be departed ever.


Happy Mother’s Day my life,

I love you so much and adore you a lot.

Keep smiling and praying,

For your little Princess who gets all even before asked.





Mother’s love!

      Thanks Jo for your visit dear!

      These lines show how a mother actually can change your tentions into joy and happiness.

      That’s the reason “a mother is like a flourishing shade of a blossoming tree”.

      Many Blessings!

      I love these lines:

      "I used to sit in her cool shade of affection.

      Her breeze of endless love,

      Covered me with comfort and joy whenever I felt low."

      Lovely

      Thanks Linda for coming along dear!

      My mother indeed was an amazing lady who was strong enough to protect her kids from unfortunates and was so kind to give all her love to make us best persons.

      And all I am today, is only because of her.I owe this to my mother and I am so proud to be her daughter.

      I had a great time with my husband and kids yesterday, my daughter gave me a mother’s card and flowers which was the most beautiful thing ever happened to me.

      Bless you and your family dear!

      Bill my friend, thanks for your heartfelt comment.

      Mother is such a God’s gift which you want to keep forever but unfortunately it can’t happen.

      But mother’s prayers and blessings always remain with her kids forever which act like a shade of a flourishing tree to protect from hot rays of sun.

      Bless you and your wife always!

      Thanks Sean brother for leaving such a heartbreaking comment, I cried at some lines too.

      There are no words to explain a mother’s love for her kids, nothing can measure that infinite love.

      May God bless all mothers in this world.

      Blessings to you and to loving mother of your kids brother.

      Remember in your prayers!

      A very sweet and touching poem. Truly heartfelt. Unlike me, you used a real life-like way of narration which detailed your journey well.

      Some poignancy at the end.

      A wise- looking and strong, patient face. God continue to bless your mom in heaven.

      She is always by your side; I know that for sure.

      What a tribute to your mother who prayed for a son but got you and loved you the more. Though she is no longer with you but her spirit is always there keeping you in her love.
