Fragrance Lingers Even now

Tears smudged face
Sparkles in my eyes
Fears the spanks the cane paced 
The treasures she offered whole
When I was small

Shared laughter, fears and dreams
She hardly rest but beside my sick bed?
Holds herself like a sandalwood  tree
A pillar, a tower which my arms could spread
When my tears shed

Now withered and shrunken hands 
Still hugs me and cuddles in a curly band
Her starry eyes look deep into mine
With pretty rosy lips she smiles
Breast filled with divine love never weaned
From Womb to tomb, I lean

    Thank my dear Linda. Your feedback really makes me to grow. This poem is for my Mom My mom died at her 87th. I adore her. She was a school principal so we 3 were brought up in a firm way but she was full of love. This is a just a small way to express my love and gratitude to her. Thanks once again and glad you enjoyed it. Love Manel
