Mother 1 - My Beautiful And Charming Mother Poem by Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

Mother 1 - My Beautiful And Charming Mother

Rating: 5.0


Your eyes like glittering pearls remain embedded in my heart,
Your smile so sweet and charming- a vision unforgettable!
Your thick dark tresses like a canopy over a bright shining forehead
Adorned with sandalwood paste and a red circle of ‘ kumkum' at the centre,
Your hair long circling at the ends like tendrils thick and wavy,
Your face so bright and joyous, always with a mischievous twinkle in your eyes!


Your words, sharp and witty, forever echo in my ears,
Your hilarious anecdotes and metaphors,
That sent the whole family into peals of laughter,
Remembered often and recounted by one and all,
Your story of a red bird that spoke only the truth
Had several messages,
Is safely stored in my memory!


Your zest for life was amazing.
You worked very hard for your family,
Yet, you had time to mingle and merge with your friends
Always tending and caring for all those around you.
What you cooked for us was always special
Mixed with special herbs and spices of love and tenderness!
There is not a day when I do not remember you
Or visualise your loving face,
I loved the way you called me ‘Geeta',
Calling me again and again
Till your last breath,
As if you were chanting a Mantra,
Or a song that chimed with the cool breath of a scented breeze!


I pray that you are born again,
In a pious family of musicians
With a blessed voice of silken texture
Where you can learn and sing to your hearts content,
Fulfilling all your dreams and desires
And be my Mother once again!


Your ever loving daughter

Mothers undoubtedly hold a special place in every childs heart, especially daughters....as years pass by and daughters grow into a young lady, they become more and more attached to their moms, parting with them after marriage is a tough thing, but mother parting from us forever is simply uncontrollable. well written.

The deep love between a Mother and daughter is inexplicable yet priceless. I can feel through your words that you have a wonderful Mother too. Thanks a lot, Kavya!
