Mother You Gave Us Life - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

You gave us life
Dear mother
In all this world
Can anyone be better?

Like the great river
Bad dirt you washed away
Sending us good soil
Showed us life's right way.

Stories you narrated
And lullabies you sang
Keep ringing in our hearts
We move on with a bang.

Protection you gave us
Good behavior you taught
Are stepping stones to progress
Together confidently we trot.

You lived a great life
Full of vigor, we adore
You left us to go on to
Another world to explore.

You gave us life
Dear mother
In all the universe
No one else's better.

    A great tribute to your mom. They have nurtured us until we can defend
    for ourselves just as a mother hen takes care of her chicks. A mothers
    love is sure hard to find. I enjoyed reading this jewel about a mother. (Report) Reply
