Mama, I miss you

If I was damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o' mine, O mother o'mine.
~Rudyard Kipling

Mama your memory rushes heavily today
Soaking my cheeks with the milk you fed
I may be as old as anything can be in this world
This bond made of spirit I will eternally cherish.
I felt you everywhere as I walked while weeping in whispers.
You were there and I could feel that your were there
Patting my heart with silent hushes of memory
Promising me this motherly love is a divine craft.

Mama, your memory etched down deep within my soul
Is meant to last till the last breath that I can hold
A mother you are the greatest artist of love and care
This heart wrenched and drenched that very day you left.
Mama, juggling between the life and mysteries it confer
I am made to understand of my introvert nature
I may have not uttered the words, “I love you”
Yet, I know being a supreme mum you understand me well.

Mama, as I thin away in the journey of this life
I am feeling more and more the presence of your world
The Great Lord is always gracious with His Blessings
And, today I thanked Him for sending you invisibly to touch my cheeks.
Those days of good, bad, pain, pleasure, desperation and depression
Are still very much printed within me as I carry myself around
But, I am grateful that as a greatest mum I’ve ever had for now and forever
Your words of consolation still freshly playing in my ears.

God bless you mama, wherever you are now.
