Mother Knows Best


M-other knows best for her every child
for its her motherly instinct that suffice
Sometimes even if she had to sacrifice
She had to do it, even she losses her life

O-f all the people on this wide earth
Only mother can bear pains of birth
... even with months of painful mothering
she never bothers the risk of upbringing.

T-o my mother whom I owed this life
Be strong amidst every life's strife;
Even without Dad who now resides
upon God's meadow, walk with stride.

H-appy mother's day, I can only sing
As my heart feels how lucky me as a being
with you as my mom with love undying
even sometimes I have done stupid things.

E-verything I have, my thoughts that cling
could never be in the palm of my being
if without your love and patience in keeping
the vow of motherhood with care burning.

R-iver may rest to breath for their spring,
time may deafen deeds even with great tidings
but never my love and respect for you mom,
it will always be burning, beyond my Tomb.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MAMA AND FATHERS DAY DAD

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
