To Cheer You Up - Poem by Reshma Ramesh

The essence of a rose still lingers
Even though many have bent down to smell it
The gold still glitter brilliantly
Though it had been spent
The diamond still shines gleefully
Even when passed on from
Mother to daughter from time unknown
Your spirit, never dying, for
With age you spice up like a pickle.

Never doing what you are told
Maybe that is your hold
When you are cold and scared
I wrap my blanket of warm embrace around
Your slouched shoulders to keep you warm
My kind eyes light the room
Make you a cup of warm hot chocolate
And read my poems to you...
To cheer you up, will that do?
