Z'ma Mor (My Mother)

It was a rainy day
driving back home
the car steered me
towards you...
your grave

Can i ever forget
how much you liked the rain?

The white wet marble of your grave
sparkled like your smile

Every falling drop
bounced to embrace me

I could feel you, and
how happy you were
but I could also hear you
say this very clearly

'Za Bachiya baraan de (Go my child, it's raining)
and you don't have an umbrella'

(Title and the verse translated are in Pashto language)

    I like it :) It's easy to understand and it's not overly long. I like the feeling created by it. That makes it a good poem.

    Mothers are very special people, and it seems your's was a very special lady, This was very well written with a lot of passion and love. A very touching tribute to your mother on mother's day.

    This is the first poem I have ever commented on but it just sums up being a mother to a son and their relationship so well that I was moved into creating an account.
    It should be sad, driving to a mothers grave under pouring rain but it made me smile and that's imo the whole strength of this poem. A really lovely poem.
    I live in france and the title 'Z'ma Mor' reminds me so much of 'm'amour' an endearment meaning my love...

    Dear Ata,

    So beautiful and moving these lines! We can breathe much love, sensitivity, your lovely thoughts evoking your dearest Mother.
    Weather conditions in contrast to the warmth of your noble heart!
    Hope to read your next verses.
    Thanks a lot.
