An Ode to My Mother

An Ode to My Mother

A Poem by Tazeen Ahmed


 

When she coveted for the best gift of life,

God sent me down the heavenly hive.

With a riveting smile, she cared for me long,

She taught me the right amid the wrong.

For all the altruistic deeds, for the care and comfort,

She never whined, rather she showered blooms from heart.

She is the reason for progress, for pragmatism,

 My flame of inspiration which perspires optimism.

 Hallows from the angels of heaven,

May god bestow upon her forever haven.

 

Adepth shall I be grateful, for leading me the path of feathers,

Adown shall I apologize, regretting for my misdemeanors.

I ought to esteem her; I owe her a countless quantity,

For she inflicted in me, acceptance and leniency.

Yet altogether, no amount can ever bear out,

The price of all provided and solaced ‘bout.

Albeit I carry her on my spines,

I’m pretty sure I can’t return any signs.

Hallows from the angels of heaven,

May god bestow upon her forever haven.

 

 

Her love is like a stream, philanthropic and standing argosy,

Knowing neither regulation nor humiliation nor eternity.

With love and fierceness, she strives to teach all that seems,

To live without her being, to weave envisioned dreams.

For she knows the real me and my worth,

To hold my hand for sorrows and joys henceforth.

Her heart is deep, and as clear as a brook,

Love, as limitless as the sky vapor.

Hallows from the angels of heaven,

May god bestow upon her forever haven.

 

 

Moralizing like a priest, a teacher of compassion she be,

Perhaps, a philosopher of miracles and mysteries.

A doctor, feasible and cooperative,

A cook, whose food is invincible and hypnotic.

A nurse, nurturing to fetch out the best of my ability,

A judge, revealing the right verdicts fairly.

A devoted wife and a loving daughter she be,

Acclimating to numerous professions, for the sake of me.

Hallows from the angels of heaven,

May god bestow upon her forever haven.

 

 

No matter how far I go, she’ll be with me,

No matter how old I may be, I’ll still be a baby.

No matter how much I disregard, she’ll shield me,

No matter how oft I misbehave, she’ll spare her heart for me.

No matter what my tongue states, she will always know me,

No matter what fault I commit, she’ll open gates of mercy.

Hallows from the angels of heaven,

May god bestow upon her forever haven.

 

Eyes like diamonds, devoid of deception,

 Her eyes shine with exemplary acts of reason.

Her words are wise, melodious to heed,

Her acts endow within me power indeed.

To not let success ignite a spark of avarice,

To not let failure dwell in heart, lighting courage.

She treaded me the path of truth and thought,

She prayed for the battles I fought.

Hallows from the angels of heaven,

May god bestow upon her forever haven.
