Poem: Ode to Mother

By Dr. Archan Mehta

Poem: Ode to Mother

Mother, please don’t fade away:

Don’t inform me, strapped

To this hospital mattress,

That you’ve got ft of clay.

Mother, I’ll pray for you

By the dying gentle:

Mother, I would like you to

Know that I like you

With all my would possibly.

Mother, please don’t say

You welcome oblivion

And need to move on:

“Son, my time has come!”

Mother, I need to arrest

Your decline and make

You mine for one final time.

Mother, whenever you have been younger,

You have been robust and

Didn’t need to 

Carry a loaded gun

To show your energy.

Mother, do you recall

How the world was ours?

Mother, I bear in mind how,

After I was a child in diapers,

You held me in your arms:

Mother, you have been all appeal

And stood shining within the gentle

Of your poses:

In spite of everything, mother, you have been

Product of lilacs and roses.

Mother, I don’t need to

Lose you: as a substitute, I 

Wish to take you residence,

So you possibly can, as soon as once more,

Take pleasure in this beautiful sundown,

Drink a cup of tea with me

For firm, mindfully,

And hear spontaneously

To the pure chirping

Of the birds within the morning.

Mother, please don’t fade away,

Stick with me:

Let’s set sail on the excessive sea.

Mother, simply you and me.

So, this darkish evening

Leaves you alone

In quiet and peace.

Mother, why don’t you

Take pleasure in this light

And silent breeze:

And look, mother, at

These smiling, dancing bushes!

Mother, pray don’t go away

Me alone:

Mother, I don’t need

To inherit a damaged residence.
