Poems

Mother

When you open your eyes dear mother
The world stops falling upon me
The most afflictive feelings
Vanish inside me

When you smile at me dear mother
Each bird starts singing above me
And the sun rises even loftier in the sky
When you fold your arms around me

When the anger takes hold of you dear mother
My heart falls ten feet below me
The serpent has taken hold of you dear mother…
Whispers my ego inside me

When your eyes can no longer keep hold of tears dear mother
My heart just breaks inside me
For why should you shed tears my mother
Don't you see that you have got me?

Keep smiling my dear mother
For it will be an honour upon me
Never forever close your eyes dear mother
Until my eyes for ever close upon me…
