Dearest Mother (Mother's Day)

by Mark   Feb 22, 2018


Oh dearest mother
if only time entwined and did reverse,
I would visit thee and no other,
for historic landmarks I'd traverse
to see you, with me, and my brother.

Take me to a time and stall
so I warm in your miracle embrace
where your arms were my Great Wall,
and oh that smile upon your face
like a thousand daisies about to fall.

Hard and long you slaved
all the bounty bestowed to us,
the futures you lovingly paved
all my stars you held - did truss
each beloved memory I saved.

If selfless was an art
then you were more than an artist!
Not only love did you impart
but I witness; your heart's the largest,
my beginning, was merely your start.

I grew to sing - you know
alike the lullaby's you tuned
each baritone-note - a flow
you bequeathed and crooned,
in dreams - sing me again, high n low.

So for this Mother's day
I devote in hearted words
the psalms of my inner way
chirpier than all the birds;
my undying love - on this Mothers day.

    Judging comment:

    This is a beautiful dedication of undying love for a mother. A beautiful relationship with one's mother mother deserves to be treasured in one's heart, and you have taken the treasures of your heart one-step forward to project your feelings in your words. You have captured it all beautifully: the love, the warmth, the selflessness, and also the lullabies. Wonderfully written.
