Ode To My Parents - Poem by Shanika marini Paul

Ode to My Parents

ATHWART TIS SEEMED TO SMILE,
As tears invaded my eyes.
Grown up, nearly four decades,
Still missing my Fathers loving arcade.

A mother art I: now so blessed
I watch my toddler lovingly embrace
“Mama”, ”mama” he repeats
crying and demanding till I’m a defeat

Yet how long doth time permit
As e’er beneath my breath commit
I watch my older now eleven
Hardly yearning for my laps heaven

Ponder do I of nostalgic confession
When I hardly recollect mother’s intention
Of the severe words and beatings aghast
As she sadly observed the harm

Four children so wild yet fun
All she intended was to mould our stunts
Today I stand so fine a lady
Cheers! ! ! my parents and God bless thee daily.

For every measure of donning us the best;
From food, to education and relaxing state
With no luxurious seat to sit upon
Thou my parents gave us all


Dedicated to my loving parent Srimani and Bertie Paul
