******************Mother*********************1979


who brought you into this world
showing you love, joy, affection.
who is your days, and who is your nights
and for her you would proudly fight.

she is not like any other, for she is your mother.

who will tend to you when you're hurt?
who will wipe away your tears
when you're down and out?

you guessed it right
she's really out of sight
your mother.

who gives you the right advice
when everything else has failed?
who is the one that used to wipe your tail
who is the one who used to clean your face.

who is the one that can't be replaced
your mother
who explained love and ecstacy
who would give her life for me.

who do you ask 'is it'
no other than your mother.

    ‘Since God couldn’t be present everywhere He created ‘Mothers’.

    This my father realized by marrow while my Granny was in coma for 49 days in her 4trt cerebral attack…

    And Sir your poem has that diction and postulation…

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
