Mother, sweet mother

Mother, why are you sad? I see you wipe a tear Mother, tell me, dear mother Tell me what you fear. I'll hold you in a tight embrace And never let you go I'll wash away your pain with my tears Sweet mother, I love you so. Mother, you gave me the sweetest love Sweeter than life to me Love sweeter than heaven above Sweet mother, you gave to me Mother, to see you look so sad My heart aches in pain Mother look my tears are falling Falling fast as rain. You sheltered me from Life's storms When the storms were raging You are my anchor mother dear Battles for me you were waging. What's stolen your happiness? Do tell me mother dear Mother, my heart's breaking Mother draw me close and near. My heart's heavy with deep sorrow Mother your pain breaks my heart Sweet mother, I will always love you Mother, as you did from the start. I know father's gone to war Mother, is that your sorrow? Mother, I am always by your side Yesterday, today and tomorrow. Mother, you don't speak a word Your hands are cold as ice Mother, wake up sweet mother dear Just look into my eyes. Look father's just back from war Wake up sweet mother dear Mother, you don't hear me, do you? My heart's filled with fear. Mother, my heart's filled with tears Mother, can you feel my heart? Sweet mother, I'll always love you Mother, as you did from the start. old poem reposted

oh my, this gets so sad when she is cold as ice. This is heart wrenching and very empathetic to the mother. Good writing, Nandita.
