A Tiny Tribute To Mother


Take my bouquet of love.
I'm grown up, but before
you I ain't full, but half.

Your lullaby still rings
as the most soothing song,
the then happiness it brings.

Your words and advices,
show me light in darkness,
in utter despair, the sun rises.

In your lap, I want to lie,
to get your body smell,
wish to get your touch, I try.

But, in the turmoil, I fail
to fulfill my cherished dream.
I remain here, my mind for you sail.

    More than a tiny tribute. Reads like a great tribute which she
    so richly deserves. A mothers love is so hard to find, to know
    she is there is peace of mind. A well written poem for a well
    deserving mother. Enjoyed it. (Report) Reply

    Mothers are a species who stand apart! Incomparable in love and selfless sacrifice! Ofcourse there are exceptions, but it is Nature's anomaly! ! Where ever I see a poem on a mother, I read it! A warm tribute to your mother! ! (Report) Reply

    I envy you Hari, I lost my mother many many years ago. Your poem is lovely, and though she may not live close to you, you still have her and her love. (Report) Reply

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
