Mother Of Two - Poem by jyoti saxena

She is a mother of two
She irrigated their life
With her blood, it is true.

She bore mildly the yoke
To them it seemed but a joke.

She gave her legs, her hands
To see them laugh till the end

She walked that extra mile
To buy them a pack of smile

The excruciating pain
Nearly tore her into two
She bore it with a smile
While they ripped her heart
For more gold to mine

Her face would only glow
To see her loved ones grow.

They did finally grow.

They took a flight
With all their might

To see them smoothly glide
Her breast swelled with pride

Higher, higher she saw them fly
Thought it was just a try

Pretended to keep breathing
Kept her soul bleeding

Clutching hard at the only hope
In the dark for life she grope

Alone she stands
Staring at her bare hands
The wonderment grew
Am I--
Or
Was I a mother of two?

    I wish my mother was alive today, even sick on bed. So i could kiss her feet every dawn and dusk.
    All my trophies and medals, all my success in life, seem so worthless without her.

    A beautiful write, an eye opener Jyoti

    10++++

    It seems as if in this materialistic world every mother sees the same fate. Mothers are always mothers... only the kids try to out grow her in every respect leaving behind all alone n wondering. (Report)Reply
