A daughter's gratitude to a loving mother Poem by Swatimalya Chattopadhyay

I can renounce all worldly pleasures
To strengthen our bond
Your love, care and concern are my treasures
Which precipitate a coating around
This makes me impervious to malignities outside
All my sufferings get alleviated
When you sit beside.

It reminds me of the school days
When on return throwing the bag,
I would cuddle you for long
And seek shelter in your lap.

From the juvenile to maturity
At the life's vertical shaft
You have shouldered all the burden
To hold me aloft.

But the law of eternity
Will not allow this pair of electrons
To remain in a bond.
Cruel time will snatch one electron
Leaving an ion (Loss of an electron) .

'Births' and ' Rebirths' not known to us
Whether those are true
But if they appear over and over
Shall always pray for a mother like you..

    Your love, care and concern are my treasures
    Which precipitate a coating around......................

    and i carry touch of divine wing by sway
    and i move learning to learn yet unknown
    love of touch by lofty petals mellows aplomb
    soul serenades by bloom of marigold
    breeze yet splashes over shadow of love

    i see the moon of wishes wades across journey
    pain mills through path of journey ahead
    i smear rungs of colors on skin of innocence
    passion sets up the heart to rain in vain

    as i live and love in vale of tunes beyond and within
    stance yet appeals what i need to know
    i do remember songs of soliloquy iridescent
    as reminiscence cries by falling of snowflakes (Report) Reply

    a very touching poem..its god's cruelty to bond and then seperate...i have lost both dad and mom...after getting used to their care and affection it is very difficult..whether they come as daughters and eventually mother us..we are never going to know... (Report) Reply

    An interesting application of human bonds and chemical technology....But the mother's love is beyond scientific metaphors....But your sentiments shines through anyways...

    Swatyimalya, this is a sweet and sincere tribute to mothers. My mother is no more for over a decade now but I still derive most of my inspiration from her. I liked your work especially the clarity and flow. (Report) Reply
