Mom, I Still Cry On This Day - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Stars twinkle and shine in sky?
I sit motionless and often ask, why?
Many years have passed since you had left,
Great unfilled vacuum you left behind and kept,

No place or corner I find safe to cry
That is why I hide the face and feel very shy
Heart is filled with grief and throat is choked
Memories do come and surface as seen in thick smoke

I realize today what the today’s mother think
Slight trouble for children makes her sink
Awake the whole night without eyes to wink
Eyes speak with worries and make no blink

No hard feelings at heart and no bargaining
Dedication and love for others is for not for gaining,
Care and intense love is seen even in raining
So much stress leaves her under intense paining

Whole life “Mom” remains totally devoted
Ideas to desert us any time is never floated
Bitterness in sweet words is never coated
Upset in life never makes her irritated

With meager income and limited sources
She is facing starvation as new danger forces
Still no sadness on her part and expression of any remorse
She does it only for the future and happiness of course

I may not dwell at length what all she did
I have no words to speak or to take lead
You were towering strength created impact deep and wide
As waves in water slowly rise and fall with tide

I wish you could for some more times would have been here
you were for me like high sky with powerful presence there,
I search today for you but find you in no place
Is there any other way for others to make you replace?

No one can take your position and lead,
not a similar composition like you as head,
I sit helplessly and cry to see you today;
I wait and watch for your arrival everyday

Why there is no parallel for your position
Ay derogatory remark for you is out of question
You are the only one to be considered as next to God
You are praised and prayed with same spirit to Lord

I am visibly moved today as felt your absence so much
You were everything and brought me to the position of such
Who else could do so much for my upkeep with care?
It was you only mom who stood by me and was always there
