veeraiyah subbulakshmi

wishing and willing..

When the baby kicks in the womb,
A few parents touch to have the kick,
Most mothers excited, while the fathers too,
A few miss this opportunity as not bothered to,
The crying of the babies never fails to wake up,
The loving hearts of the mother and father,
The crying of the mothers never fails to shaken up,
The young hearts of children, who see the rift,
Hearts of children love their mother,
As it listened to her beats day and night,
Hearts of children are attracted to the mother,
As she is the one, who listens to their blabber,
The crying of babies never fails to wake up the mother,
The crying of mothers never fails to shaken up the children.

    Yes, Hans VR, the exceptions are painful to see, particularly, when the mothers and fathers are neglected in their old age, but I wrote this poem for the lonely married / divorced men whose children did not wish them on Father's day. Thank you for the comments.. (Report) Reply

    Nice poem, Veeraiyah.
    The love between children and parents, so lovely expressed
    But nothing is never, nothing is always.

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
