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

The words of this poem touch me in a way few poems have the heartbreaking pain of loss of such an important person. You honour your mother's legacy with this work. She is immortal in this work. A truly exceptional work. Thank you.

(2) I have tried my best to match that sophistication into my translation and also to retain the aesthetic core of the original poem but it is for the discerning readers to judge. Thanks a lot, Geeta Ma'am.
