My Mother - Poem by Sathya Narayana
She bore pains
to safely land me
on the earth.
Now she left this earth
leaving me pain.
When I called her 'A Goddess'...
she smiled away.
When I addressed but
the deity in the temple
'O Mother! '
She felt proud, if not a little shy.
When she suckled me with milk,
when she bathed me and toweled clean,
when she fed me with the best cuisine
and knitted my sweater,
nothing less than a Mother.
