Ah, It’s A Mom’s Way

Ah, Its A Moms Way short poem

Photo by maessive

Unrequited love is heartache
Was what an eight year old had
Taken home and told his mom
While quizzed about the movie
He had gone along with his elder cousins
Being the best friend she was and
Always been, clasped him in a
Tight embrace, ruffled his hair and
Gave a sweet peck on his cheek
Thirty years from then is almost half a lifetime and
Many unrequited and few reciprocated
Relations later, that eight year old
Today has an eight year old son
Despite all those years
I could still remember that day and
Feel in all its sweetness, what
Mom has imprinted on that day.
