She Is Gone… - Poem by Dr Anish Mathew John

12 July, it was the day
The terrible day, I nod in fear
Drew her breath in last one sigh
Lo, was gone my mom most dear

Brave was her, she bore all pain
New I was, she held me close
Walked along, never made me fall
New this world, she brought me here

Teacher, guide, my life’s mentor
Is gone now far, she is out of sight
Can’t hear her voice, the voice so sweet
The warmth is gone, I longed for it

Selfless love, a mother’s gift
A gift reserved for kids so dear
It keeps the light shine bright all day
Home she made, sweet home it was

Poor my mom, her health gone low
She pulled along with life few left
Strong her heart, weak her bones
Found hard to keep her soul up high

Fought she strong, stout her mind
Held the word of God so tight
Tears rolled down her cheek all days
Felt real hard, the pain untold

Miss you dear, my mom you’re gone
You see me now, far off my world
The world I am in, it’s short on time
You smile at me, from heaven afar

Jesus my Lord, my loving God
Keep my mom, safe and sound
You’ve set the day and hour unknown
To hug my mom again with love.
