To Mothers For Mother’s Day

by irinadim


I salute all Mothers
Those who wanted to be
Those who didn’t want to be
Those who couldn’t be
But dreamed to be

I salute all Mothers
Irrespective of creed or colour
Married or unmarried
Loved and cherished
Or judged and rejected

I rejoice in your joys
As you watch your offspring
Walking down the path of Light
And I feel your anguish and pain
When they’re battling with fiends

I salute your selfless devotion
To the baby in your tender arms
Your everlasting Love
And infinite Patience
O Mothers of this World!

    • Oh please do, Andrea. I had a chance to thank my mother many times while she lived, and for the very last time the day before she passed away I thanked her for everything. I’m honoured my poem touched you so deeply and I thank you for letting me know.
