Mother Died - Poem by kelvin karani

today my mother died
unapreciated by those she bore
at her departure they cried
for they never saw there mother before,
smiling but immobile.

today my mother died
after years of taking care of us
in retrospect we were stupid
for her love we dint reciprocate

alone we are
without a mother anymore
there never will be another like her
like my mother.

a lavish funeral
an expensive casket
an expensive proceeding
and what not
can atone not
for our ingratitude
