Theme: Mother

Oh, My Gracious Mother

nathmal ji.jpg

Oh! Mom listen, you are really
Pure heart and true reflection of God.
Who soothes me every time
In troubles or various odd moments.
I think, none can take your place
In my life’s episode.
You have always been a shield
Against obstacles.
You sacrificed frequently all your
Joys and happiness to bring me up.
I salute you again and again, express
Heartily prostrating on the knee.
You are a ‘role model’ for me and
Have proved heaven of my dreams.
I am nothing without you, no cheeriness,
A desert without any streams.
I've always been inspired by you and wished
That may you be my mom in every birth.
God granted a boon in shape of you
For care, peace, bliss and mirth.
You have sympathy, kindness, service,
Pity and love key in my world.
For, you are ecstatic garden of my life
And I am only a warbling bird.
I am sorry for misbehaving but you
Consecrated me, in my every activity.
I wish, God may bless your shower
Of love thousand years, till eternity.
You bore so many difficulties in
My nurture and never properly slept.          
Unless I provide you shoes of my skin,
I cannot be free from your debt.

 (Specially dedicated to Rupradha Mookerjee and Her Mother because I got inspired by her poem "Mom" on Mother's Day 11th May 2014.)

Comment A lot of thanks Madhvi ji and Jaipal Singh Ji for your candid words of appreciation. It is only feedback of
praise which inspires a person to write something new.And I think,In this way that person performs an
important role to push him or her ahead on the path of life's achievements.Hundred examples are of it.
Thank you very much.Regards.
