Twentieth June

Ma, remembering you
My eyes well up with tears;
Realize what I have lost
Nothing equals your love and care.
The day you were leaving me,
Not that you ever wanted to,
Your eyes were fixed at me,
Pain had turned the face blue.
I made you fight till the end.
Yes, I did lie to you.
The world had given it up,
But a wonder I needed, I knew.
When your life was left in a skeleton
And your pain had touched the sky,
I prayed to God to take you;
Did you read that in my eyes?
You took pain for me through your life
For me, you even fought death
When I couldn’t take it anymore
For me, you dropped the last breath.

Comment Thank you so much, Madhaviji......I always find short of words to express her love, care and greatness.

Thank you, Kulbirji for liking this one. Yes, I had read "I'll follow you". It was an excellent composition. Seems my feelings were expressed in your words!

Padmaja, thank you so much for being there. How are you feeling? Are the knees bit better?

Aparanaji, thank you for liking it and addding an image of the date 'BIG and BOLD' - very rightly!
