Poem for an unknown mother... short poem

I wanted to be you

For all this while

I longed for your elegance

And that perfect smile

I picked up your style

I did things your way

How would you react?

What would you say?

Your thoughts, your dreams

Your hair, your eyes

To an extent that I wanted

The feet of your size.

And then one day I saw you cry

A zillion questions, but couldn’t ask why

You said you were weak, I could feel the pain

You didn’t even want to stand up again

Life is a bitch, I heard you say

And before I knew you were gone away

I still keep wondering, after all these years

How do smiles suddenly, change to tears?

When poetry touches the soul, everything starts making sense. The inner world seems real and the outer one becomes bearable. When thoughts mixed with words travel through the empty spaces of mind, poetry happens to me. It always has been a mysterious force guiding me through. With two published books and one amaturish blog, I consider myself blessed to have started this journey. An old diary with think brown cover and an over used, end bitten pen. That’s where real magic begins! May you find your undiscovered meanings in my poems. May existence make sense. Even if just for a little while.
