The Heart of a Mother

Eventually he decided to prove
he was a true lover of this world
as he is a loving son of his mother
he would do for his beloved
what world had never done
when he was put on a test
by his beloved, if he was so
a great lover of this world
to bring his mother's heart
for whole hearted satisfaction.

This made him worried
from all corners of his life
but could not stop rather than being a betrayer for the life.

So, he went to his mother and
asked with his gloomy face
when his heart and mind both
were disdaining for his evil deed
Mom! you have made a great sacrifice
for my satisfaction, for my well being
would you do once more
to make my life worthy and
save me from being called a betrayer.

Mom's heart was very fragile
unable to see his weeping face

Her heart burst up with tears
to listen his pitiful voice

What happened? what happened?
My son! i can giveup my life
for all pleasures in your life

He wept bitterly but was constrained

Mom! Mom!
my beloved has asked for your heart
if i loved her so much.
you gave me life, brought me up
i can not live without you
i can not survive without her too.

Mom had to cross the fire examination
for survival of her maternity
to fulfill all desires of his son.

She wiped off her tears and
became ready to give her heart
for all pleasures of his son
to make his life full of gay.

He took a knife and cut out her heart
the heart to which he was clinged days and nights
the heart which could realise each resonance of his heart

Carrying her heart on his palms
he was going to meet the destnation
his every step was being driven by mother earth
to bring pleasures in a son's life
as if when she is ploughed
her heart never cares
what is flowing from her heart
is it milk or it is blood, after all
she is tolerating to make her sons
stronger and stronger with blessings
for a long and a long life

The son was going and going and going
taking his mother's heart on his palm
as if the heart was kissing the palm
with her full cares and affection
and blooming like a morning flower
kissing the first ray of sun.

Suddenly he stumbled with a stone
the heart of the mother cried out
oh my son! oh my son!
Did you get hurt?

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
