My Departing Mother
by I V RAMA RAJU
MY DEPARTING MOTHER!
I leave my Ma at her ready death bed;
Know as one our eyes are ever red,
My last kiss made her smile in her head.
Her body damaged, shapes changing stage;
Unable we her kids to stop even at her 60 age,
Cannot pray unknown god to take her away from this crazy cage,
For her recovery all oceans we even can stir,
Cursing myself for missing my last service to her.
What this business responsibility in our busy mess earth
Even Know well one day I pass the same on my last berth?
Just a call now from my caring and serving brother:
“Only very few days to our ever loving mother”
She's even able to convey to me not to take trouble to see her
From this distant land, on hearing I lost everything,
Being drowned in tears sea swing,
Oh! Still saving me with her last single broken wing.
Ma! Ma! ….Ma!
Ever grateful to you Oh my Ma!
To let me understand
How your kids should stand
On this spinning earth;
‘A rebirth’ indeed to me from your death berth,
Only ‘mother’ the creator even heavier than this very earth
May take their shapes all future kids from this unique motherly nectar
With energy of fatherly love as that of sun an ever shining star!
An orphan son
