Mother

Rating: 5.0

Of all human manifestations
May I say, you are the greatest
As you give milk, food and protection
What to say of love, peace and rest!

You are the womb of the universe
The waterbed of beings
You are the lap of heavens
And mother of all earthlings

You were the sweet lullaby
When I needed some sleep
You became the inspiration tall
When I had to dive very deep

From the foes you saved me
Allowed friends to be close
You took the prick of the thorn
And handed me the rose

You burnt your fingers so often
To cook a meal for your child
You took so many insults
So that his life is styled

Tell me Ma, tell me honest
Did you, else, ask for anything?
Even in your loftiest dreams
Other than my sheer wellbeing?

Now that tells me the secret Ma
of the sacred smile you always wore
and how you hummed the blessings
Even as doing the hardest chore

************Dedicated to my mother, dedicated to all mothers***************

Very fine dedication to your mother and to all mothers. I need to refer to this poem, I sometimes forget what a mother's love does for her child.

Very nice. After reading a few poems on 'Mother' I felt that all children eternally have the same messages for their mothers, only words are different.Ten out of ten.
