Mother's Gift Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

Mother's Gift

Rating: 5.0

I look up and see this summer sky
A night so dark and bright!
Wanders a thought- ninth May-
Mother's day in my mind

Years now her I lost since
Mother my, so dear
Stare my eyes at the sky above
A thousand stars alight!

Amidst the glow and glitter there
One star I find differs!
That sends down a cool and loving gaze
Whispers soothing words

The love and care so missing long
Drift on me through the air
I get a gift on Mother's Day!
My mother is right up there!

Among the glow and glitter there One star I find differs That sends down cool and loving gaze; Feel whispers soothing words I find this very touching and it pulls my heart string. As i can also relate to this, ..sometimes, i look up to the sky, pretending that one of the stars there is my mother looking down at me whispering words that puts me to sleep in peace..Thanks for this sharing

A beautiful and touching poem. A great tribute and remembrance for a wonderful mother. The love and care of our Mother will always be remembered no matter what. The love is well engraved on the tablet of our hearts. Our love for our Mothers, too will always be there, nurtured until the end of time. So beautifully written with superb imagery.
