What Is It Called Mother? - Poem by rajagopal haran

Mother I understand the term;
Hear people calling and
Many women getting called!
Pleasant it is every time!
As if honey with flavor is poured into ears
I do not have a mother to call!
Women say it is an important role
In every human life of womanhood!
Where are you my mother?
Your son is ready to call you,
Thousand times a day non-stop!
Have you retired? Or
God wants mother for him/her?
Tell me please because I have never talked to you also!

Being a male I can only feel!
The absence of mother
Never I can realize
What a mother is?
Compelled by the thirst
To have a mother
I seek everywhere!
At last my mother has showed up
Not in one form
But in all the forms of women on this earth!
For it is only one house for the owner
But many for the other on rental
Thank you mom for culminating in plurality
Bless and speak to me through all!

    Message from Rajagopal
    Dear Amma
    Already i have become your Son; My biological Mother's penance (she used to do prayers like anything with lot of Upavas) Abhirami has blessed me by showing a selfless soul as my mother; now i can call Amma which word was rarely spelt by me so far

    my prostrations to all womenfolk for adopting me thro' this forum or without

    Wistful, poignant and very touching. Your mother would be proud to know that her
    son has become such an excellent poet.

    Warmest regards,
