Your always smiling face
Is such full of grace
Your fine wrinkles, which have started to appear
They are the telltales of what all you have had to bear
Your better half closed his eyes forever
The most dreadful nightmare you could think of ever
How you got that courage to bring him from miles apart
Just so others can see him off you did your part
I always gather enough strength to ask how you did this
But may be, with him being here, is your actual bliss
You strongly stood like a tall tree
And fulfilled our wishes for free
Two decades gone,
You are living it all alone
Be it us with you or your kith and kin
This incessant void must have hurt you like a piercing pin
Two of us from your nest are away in distant land
How I wish to fly to you with the magic of a wand
Your existence is the soul of our lives
For us to be buoyant, you are the biggest drive
You are the Sun of our little universe
In your brightness and shine, we immerse
Wake up to see your ever smiling face
Which is such full of grace
Sure at dusk, you do set
But with illumination and hope you again arise
And under your feet is our paradise.

Thought to post this on mother’s day but to tell you, am going on a vacation (back home to India) for a month, so would be taking a break from WordPress, so sharing the poem today in advance.
Will miss you all so much especially some of you very much to be honest, just hope to return back safe and meeting you all again.
May God keep all of you safe, healthy and happy. Take care, Bye until we meet again.
Thank you so very much for your time for reading and going through my posts 😊.
