My Nightingale

by Fsams   Oct 16, 2012

Wouldn't I wish I was your own
Maternal blood, flesh and bone?

Kind-hearted, your smiley face
Will not fade off in a million days

A mother at times, a friend always
A guiding lamp, illuming rays

You know me well, you understand
I owe you much for where I stand

I know deep down, that I won't fail
As I have you, my Nightingale

    I would like to say first that this is a very beautiful poem. I really like the flow here and the word choice is fantastic, it's true a friend can take on so many roles like a mother, doctor, counselor, and etc.

    Your words here seem heartfelt and they're very soothing that a quality that many poets don't process. XP

    This piece has left me wondering if you are talking to the bird ( it's the first time I see this term nightingale)

    But I thought you Feel secure because this bird is there for you. Though, I'm not sure if you are talking to the bird and telling the bird that you are a mother and a friend at times... Or may be the nightingale is your son? And you know you won't fail because your son is your motivation. I think that's why the question at the beginning wouldn't I wish I was your maternal blood? But I have the feeling that it doesn't matter, the love is there. Nonetheless.

    Nice piece

    The flow in this is so beautiful. I love how deep it feels, like the state you were in while writing it must have been lovely. Nicely written. 5/5 from me
