Oh mother your dear tears...

I cry when I'm worried,
I cry when I'm sad,
I cry when I get scoldings,
The scoldings from 'dad'!

I cry when I get frightened,
I cry when I don't gad,
I cry when I'm terrified,
I cry when I lose what I had.

I cry when I get jealous
When I see a pampered lad;
But strange you are my mom,
While thinking I really go mad!

You cry when I get home a trophy,
You cry when you are glad?
You cry when 'I' make mistake,
You cry when 'I' am bad?

You are really strange my mom,
That's all I can say;
Weird are the tears from your eye,
That also cries when I cry.

You cry when you are happy,
And also when you are sad;
You really keep confusing me while crying,
Whether you are sad or glad!

Oh mother your dear tears...

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
