No Sign Of A Whine, A Smiling Mother

My heart I set on a dear companion the cherished imprint on my soul, profound how safe I felt in a tough kind bosom! though I ceased to touch and see, tightly bound. *** Sweet and pleasant, that huge effort and toil no sign of a whine, a smiling mother whims she would swallow, our feast wouldn't spoil the feel of having her, like no other! *** A glance at my eyes, she would read my heart "ignore the pain, you have to dig your mine" her persona, to me she would impart how could I be without the whole of mine! *** One tear of joy.. one other of woe in time of grief, she had a bride to wed her head bowing to what's to life a foe I'm that one whose dad in wedding time dead. *** No sign of a whine! her soul valiant her words I retain, "I'm a woman of worth"! how she longed for life! hers was transient "recite me holy words.. I'm back to earth". *** A companion when I recall, I learn a woman, the world of books didn't know of impressive drive, much she would discern mother, the one I am, to you I owe.

I could have sworn I commented on this beauty, dearest poetic Soul, but perhaps it was on FB that I saw it. There is no greater bond than mother and child, nothing equals the love felt, and you have expressed this so eloquently dearest Besma. A fave for me....Maria xox

Despite the dark ambience of the place; the mother still keeps her child tightly to her bossom, for fear that any harm might betide. A trustful companion and a source of mercy and abundance from which we drink the first principles of Poetry and love one another.. God bless Both you.

An awesome tribute you wrote, Besma, to selfless love of a mother--and with your poem in your cherished words, you honor all mothers. I picture her to be a valiant defender-- defying all ills to protect her family. So touching and heartfelt is your write. Much gratitude in your words...and much strength in recall of her life. Well done, indeed!

You definitely agree on that all the words could not do justice or give due respect and value to the mother.. the purest of beauty a soul can be blessed with.. Just I couldn't help the aching urge to connect with my mother and write my deep respect, love and gratitude.. thank you so much dear Vijay for your very beautiful feedback and your great and so much appreciated support.. Regards and blessings.
