Poetry: Mom - Happy Mother's Day!

I found a long-lost poem I had written some 11 years ago.  Poetry was a new-found interest at that time, so looking back at it now I feel the writing was quite amateurish (may be still is, ha!).  I think I had written this one for my mom's birthday, not sure.  I will have to ask her if she still has it.  For all I know, she has treasured my dad's love letters written 28 years back - so she'd better save the love I've expressed to her too, hehe.  [This was intentional; she reads my blog ;)]   

And since it is Mother's Day today 13th May 2012, here I'm sharing this poem wishing all the wonderful moms a Happy Mother's Day and saluting their unconditional love.


Mom you are the greatest and beloved of all,
Mom your love is never downfall.
Mom my love is infinite for thee,
You've exerted such a lot; I know I can't repay its fee.
Mom for me you shed your tears,
And threw out from me all my fears.
Mom I weep for you are growing old;
When in my youth you shaped me bold.
Mom thy heart is of purest gold;
It's never hot and it's ne'er cold.
Mom you are superior, and that you'll always be,
I know for me you wasted a great deal of energy.
Mom your eyes forever shine with love's light,
You were the one to calm me whenever I had a fight.
Mom you told me stories at night,
And you perpetually pointed me the path of right.
Mom like you there's no one dear,
In my mom's shadow I've spent wonderful years.

~ Nisha
