A Loving Mother


What else could you ask from this world
but a mother so lovely & bold
No other thing shalt reach her worth
None could've exchange things to heart

Long enough yet to be a year
She brought us there in her womb
Long enough yet excitement steer
to dark abyss she ne'er succumb

She's the way to one's existence
She took care; feed & dressed us
At young our hearts we're stonehard
She spend her time, no exchange, ne'er haggard!

She sow seeds of intelligence
wipe off things like negligence
She established our lives' foundations
She taught us how to draw conclusions

Our lives to theirs were irony
truly an inverse proportion
As we burgeon to maturity
their youth were slowly stolen.

Shalt I return the favor to thee?
but of nothing is as worthy
as what thy hath done to me
My mother beloved, I praise thee...

Someone we should truly adore
someone to spend time more!
Show thine thanks, love & affection
Afore it's too late to express emotions..

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

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,
