Mother O’ Mother

Mother O’ mother and the mother divine,
You shade me from the blues with your care Alpine.
With You around,I feel so secure.
Even the most difficult objective becomes easy to procure.
Even when you are far and not around,
I feel cherished with your blessings that surround.
As years pass and you age in years,
Fear of being left alone leaves me in unshed tears.
Though I am as mother too
But the daughter in me still craves for having my mother with me,
The fear of facing the world without your support ,
choke me to the core with unending void.
You stay safe and hale wherever you wish to stay
Just stay with me in some corner of your heart
Don’t allow any folly or mistake to take my place away.

Note-Dedicated to my mother who celebrated her 79th bday on 7 November,and all mothers and the mother divine and our motherland too..

    A cry from the heart : how one wishes one could experiment the unparalleled protective and comforting love of one’s mother and see ones mother well and happy throughout one’s life ! A daughter’s bond with her mother is all the more special.
