Ama

Some have seen how lovely you were,
Most knew how kind at heat you were,
Rest have seen your picture only,
And you are my first love, ama.
The man of your life, is no less than an angel,
A faithful husband and a loving father,
Never did he let us feel your absence,
Not even once your warmth was unfelt.
Just as the sparrow misses its tune,
Autumn misses the spring,
An old man misses his home,
I miss you on every walk of life, Ama.
Brothers and a sister the most valuable treasure,
You gave me, my inspiration my best friend,
Shone through all the tempest to a harbor,
My light I count on, for darkness to come.
Your going taught me “Impermanence,”
Nothing can be owned beyond tomorrow,
The most beautiful gift of life “Mother” be lost,
For life is to lose and endure and love!
At times I feel, when I am low,
To lose someone you love the most,
When under the cocoon of innocence is better,
Than to curse the wind of time, as you tend to know love!
But, on the voyage of time you learn,
To be with someone you love the most,
When out of the cocoon of innocence,
Even for a moment is worth a million diamonds.
Just as the sparrow misses its tune,
Autumn misses the spring,
An old man misses his home,
I miss you on every walk of life, Ama.
However, I cant own you beyond time,
So, I let you go, while I keep your memories,
Ingrained deep in my heart and soul,
May you find peace there!
P.S   I wrote this Poem in August 2011, by that year, 
        it was already 13 years, since I have lost her 🙁 🙁
