Distant short poem

Photo by Dane Khy

You brought me to this world
You fed me when I was not able to eat on my own
You helped me to walk, you helped me to grow
You are the one who is responsible for my existence, my being

Now many times you need me to feed you, but we are far
At times, you need my hands to hold, but they seem so far
God chose you to be my mother, but he created separate destinies for us
You were there when I needed you the most, but I am far
You will always remain my mother even if I remain far
I pray to God, not to remain so far

And I pray to God…

Dears Sweety,
It is amazing how you could visualise the feeling of so many millions of hapless childern. It is very true we can never repay what our Mother has done to us. Your first poem itself is so deep rooted in thoughts I am sure you go places in the field of poetry. My best wishes to you and may god always be there on your side…

Upon the land far away is something different I dare say the look of sandy beaches and palm trees are set on top of flowing sea reeds where in that distance of the land is something different seen at hand

A Not So Distant Dirge

A Not So Distant Dirge elegy

The heart rending wail from the floor below Found its way into the corridors of my mind, Echoing in my brain long after it subsided. It was Munna’s mom, who died that morning, As drastically as Jigjri’s son lost his

A Distant Endearment

A Distant Endearment short poem

Look outward, vacillant eager suitor; the harbouring eyes reveal all. And never disappearing, your every thought would explore revolving exclaves; maintaining absolving introversion. Never subvert the remaining affection; never go. Endless reminder; sanguine. Rarely ever after death, there’s happiness. Every
