Yellow Curtain - Poem by banamala sen

The curtain in my room is pale yellow,
With golden leaves on it,
My mother lived in this room for a little while,
And left a little bit of her.
 
She told me, she loved the curtain,
And used to gaze at the leaves,
And ponder about every one in her life,
Each leaf reminded her of each one of her beloved ones.
 
She prayed for them,
Uttering each and every name,
Each and every person precious in her life,
And in the end,
The names were countless!
 
The curtain still hangs there.

    Dear Jez, thank you so much for reading this. It's about my Mom, who stayed with me for a little while, and talked to me about how each morning she prayed for everyone she loved, and also everyone in the world. Her prayer was not limited to her own family. Thanks again for including in your poem-list. That's an honour!

    Thanks, Siddartha! This poem came from my heart when I thought about my Mom. She was a spiritual woman. It's a true story.

    Yes, Bri, this is a true story. My Mother came where I live now, and stayed for a few days. She was very spiritual, and used to pray for not only her own children, but everyone she knew, and also for people she didn't know. Thanks for asking, and leaving beautiful comments. Many many thanks for including in your favourite poem-list.

    Yes, Bri, it's my true story. My Mother came where I live now, and stayed with me for a few weeks. She was very spiritual, and prayed for not only her own children, but everyone she knew, and she didn't know. Thanks for your comments, and including this poem to your favourite list.
