A Mother - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

When my daughter said,
Mom!
You are looking much better!
I was checking her blood pressure,
I knew it was too high,
she looked into my eyes,
and somehow managed to transfer,
her tears to my eyes,
got her daughter's smile,
reflected on her lips,
and when she replied,
yes sweetheart,
I am all right,
I had to leave the room,
for wiping my tears!

    Very amazing poem composed and shared on mother. Tear comes out when we hear mom is ill but we always hope mom's good health and lovely smile. A thoughtful and deeply emotional poem shared definitely.10 (Report) Reply
