Lies inside her silvered heart
A golden memory wrapped in layers of mist
And a guilt torn apart
Tiny finger wrapped in warmth
Of embrace of her graceful Mother’s hands
As she teaches her to walk forth
Having lunch on the first day
At school, feeling touch of her mother’s hand on bread
Smiles the shine in her eyes grey
While kids play with toys, she pour
Her innocent wishes to her Mother’s mind -laying in her lap
As her Mother teaches her to endure
Having a single meal that day
She Glances at her Mother sleeping peacefully- and recall
She had nothing but water today
As grains of sand slip through hand
Time flew by, fading her childhood in mystic wraps
Now she was a girl strong enough to stand
Cherished was the ethereal time
Befallen under shadows of her Mother’s Love Divine
Problems dimmed by the wind chimes
With a flash her world shattered
Broken was her Mother’s heart, by her words angry and harsh
-She left with tears flooded
And came back on a stretcher
Wounded-Lifeless her Mother’s lies on blood filled white sheet
With a brand new shawl there
Woman who walked with her mother;told
She bought this shawl for her beloved daughter
To make her anger cold
Mind paralyzed and confused
She looked at her Mother’s feet- and Remembered she had
No money to buy shoes.

Haye Bohat shukriya !! Itnay saray achay achay comments You made my day 🙂 Love you lots xx
Too good… really…
You say you don’t write well… But you know what sets you apart? You fill emotions in your words… And your vocabulary seems impressive…
From the poetry point of view… Well… its a highly personal opinion but… agar rhyming nahin jam rahi hoti to zabardasti nahin introduce karni chaahiye. Please don’t take me wrong but jaise is poem mein kuchh lines bahut badi thin doosron se… Shaayad tune rhyming ke liye aisa kiya… idea achchha hai… but isse padhne ka flow toot-ta hai usse… I hope you understand…
And don’t take my criticism too seriously… Tu sahi mein achchha likhti hai… and the quality of your writing is improving very rapidly… Just that I am in general very harsh at criticism… Kabhi bhi bura lage to khul ke bolna… Theek hai? Ro to nahin rahi? 😛
Thanks alot brother for this appreciation….you know that it means a lot to me.
Haan theak keh ray ho ye tareeka mene net per he daikha tha poem likhnay ka and I liked it tu socha k try ker lun. Per theak se set nae ker pae. Thanks so much for pointing that out. Aenda khayal rakhun gi boss 😉
Araay naheen aise e tu likhna acha hoga na tu chahta hai na tri behn aik bari writer ban jay ? 😛 Kerta reh criticism i like it.
Haha nheen ro rahi ab aise tu nae kero 😛 😛
Ban ja, ban ja…. Ek BAHOT badi writer ban ja… Waise hieght kitni hai teri? 😛
Lol aisi batain nae pochtay hotay ganday bhae 😛
Teri hi bhalai k liye poochha hai…
Bataa de… us se main ye decide kar loonga ki tujhe BOHAT BADAA ban ne ke liye roz kitni der pole se latakna padega 🙂
Me nae kerti ye lataknay walay kaam 😛 Jitni banae hai Allah ne itni e theak hai 😛
Matlab… aadmi chahe bhi to bhalaai nahin kar sakta… Kalyug hai ghor kalyug 😛 😛
Hahaha Jo b hai bus theak hai 😉

That is beautiful and sad..and i’m glad it is not you that is the subject of your writing for this one…
There are some feelings that can never fully be expressed in writing..but you make an effort here ..that presents this feeling i think….
Love and i would say happy holidays to ya..if ya had them..i guess…
Sometimes that’s easy to forget too….
They came so fast for me this year..they are almost gone before i noticed them….
i didn’t even have an opportunity to put all of the blow up 8FT polar bears and all of that in my yard..to shine it out to the neighbors…
And for the most neither did they..so i guess here where i live..people are for the most part too busy living..to live….
The NOW moment is always the best..i think..so maybe that’s why i missed it this year..to put it in a positive light..i guess…:)
Thank you so very much again for liking what I wrote ad for the beautiful thoughts. Well I have made my effort to let you feel those feelings.
You are right…The NOW moment is always the best. Happy holidays to you too 🙂 Hope you are having a good time. Love xx
