Single Mother

Updated on December 1, 2017

Single Mother


Her reflection awaits for a smile,
the cool breeze coaxes her to stroll another mile.

Listening to the chirp and birds flight,
she yearns for a companion just right.

With motherly care vast and wide like rivers tributary,
she regains happiness greater that any, through her baby.

      Wow ! Hari bhai, this is really a sweet poem about love. A mother can bear anything just for the sake of her children ; there is no doubt about it.

      Missy, When I finished writing this poem, yes, I had thought about you too. The song in the video is about single mother, it is a very popular song in South India, which inspired me to write it.

      Thanks for the appreciation.

      Very nice poem Hari. I like the single mother video too. Seems to be my life story. I am a single mother with a son having bipolar disorder.

      Beautiful words. While my wife is not single, this reminded me of her. I know that she loves me very much she simply loves our boy more than can be spoken. Which makes me love them both more.

      That was a quick manatita. Thanks for being a great follower.

      Yes. What you mentioned is true. Every emotion has its stipulated periodicity. The mother child relationship is strongest.
