Life without you

Life without you

A Poem by Najam Us Saher

LIFE WITHOUT YOU
You were gone leaving my heart wrenched,
My childhood with you I could not sketch.
My little hands couldn't stop you from leaving,
You are gone mother, still I feel I am dreaming,
My innocent face you ignored and went away,
Why did you leave me?
I know you wanted to stay.
My tears were easily ignored by you,
You don't know how I am living without you,
I wish I had a perfect childhood,
But my life was filled with tragedies,
I want to bring you back,
But I cannot,
You wanted me,
Don't tell me you did not.
Was there any sign of sadness when you left,
Or were you happy?
I am so restless to see you mother,
Feels like being your daughter is a tragedy. 
What was my fault for which I lost you?
Couldn't this life be renewed?
You gave me this life mother,
But without you in this pain I wither.
Everytime when I look in the mirror,
My reflection looks like it's you,
And when my hand reaches to touch,
I realise you are not here,
Happiness for everyone you are,
But you are my tear,
Everyone is so close to their mothers,
But you are not here.

This brought tears in my eyes, I can imagine a life without mother and that eager to renew the life, most of us don't look after our parents sometimes I deny them too, but the lesson this poem taught me I will never forgive, poem taught me which no one did in all these years. I feel sorry for those who don't have mother

A very sad poem. Children need their mother. I felt the sadness and the need to know a mother. Thank you Najam for sharing the amazing poetry.

I am glad that I conveyed a message and you got it right. Thank you very much.
Always love how you put your feelings in paper. Many people cannot do this. Change "their" to "there". Another well written poem.

Thank you so much I am glad to know that you can understand them.
Such emotion, wrenching, and frustration. In this line, "My childhood with you I couldn't sketch" please consider using "could not" instead of "couldn't" for the sake of the rhythm.
Such a delight to read raw, human emotion. I loved it very much. xxx

Thank you so much. These words mean a lot. You made me so happy. Thank you so much. ☺
Hey Najam, I just wanted to say I can relate to this. Not by being raised motherless, but by being inflicted emotional pain by one's parents. The longing and despair is deep in this poem. I support your poems, they're amazing! :)
