For My Mother Poem by Aram Stefanian

For My Mother

Rating: 5.0

You come to me in my dreams time after time
Very much alive, it seems unbelievable
We're home like before, and I take care of you
But terribly afraid that you will leave me

I can never get used to losing anybody
The grim reaper kidnapped so many from me
Celestial forces shape one's karma for good
Would heaven give relief from a nagging pain?

I'm sorry I was dumb to disregard your advice
Never realized that someday I'd also get old
The life goes on, yet the memories are hurting
I'll always miss meeting with you, my dear mom

Powerfully and movingly penned. A very compassionate memory of a beloved mum. Thanks sharing, Aram.

Especially during these days, we feel this emptiness she left. A great and touching poem about your Mother, dear Aram, I am still impressed by its beauty and loveliness this poem leaves the reader after having read. A poem subkimest, a poem with a rare Beauty, I admired. Once again the 10 Full Score and much much more for you!

A very touching poem, but excellent to know that there is great regret. Poetry is the only place to embalm the wounds, I reckon, because dear mom is no where to find anymore. The poem gets its beauty since the poet created this poem as a confessional one. A 10 for the beautiful poem. My dear Mum is dead too, so the words you wrote here are still breathing.
