Mom! You're Not Aware Of This Mother's Day?

Remember you had tired & sad eyes
like in a Vincent Van Gogh's painting
and the secret smile in your weathered face
resembles Mona Lisa!
The big heart,
specialized doctor's diagnosed
that easily soluble pill
'Glyceryl trinitrate'
You keep under your tongue
when you're uneasy?
That always recites; 'Blessed are those
who can give without remembering
and take without forgetting.'
You really loved the love
and remember when I put sugar on the floor
then collect the black ants,
'Don't harm anybody' You advised me.
Everyday is a Mother's day, Mom!
Nowadays, life full of Neck/Back pains
Headaches, Numbness
Tingling & shooting pains
Sprains and strains
and this ugly World
still rotates in my
unending dreams?
to my beloved wife-children's Mother!

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
