Star of My Life

I remember the times we sat up late,
counting the stars scattered over the nightly sky;
and every time you raised your finger asking:
"Mamma, which is the brightest? Isn't it this one?"
You would point; and I, oblivious of the stars,
for my star lives beside me; within me, making me complete,
would point laughingly at you, my son;
touching your nose lightly, I'd say:
"It's right here, for real stars are not found on the sky,
but in the hearts of their ol' mum..."
Shining brighter than ever, you dim everything else, 
as I fill my eyes with your light...
I remember,
I remember everything;
as I fade away but see you grow...
you; the star of my life.

'It's right here, for real stars are not found on the sky, ~ but in the hearts of their ol' mum..." ~
Shining brighter than ever, you dim everything else, ~ as I fill my eyes with your light...'

A truly beautiful poem, full of love and light, words finely placed, the best of emotions on display. For a young dentist by profession you have the heart of an ancient goddess.

This was a beautiful write. Stars are the cause of much wonderment, but you remind us that there is wonderment to be find in the ones around us, particularly in the mothers of the world. Nice work.

What a lovely and thoughtful homage to Mothers, Yumna … you've touched my olde heart deeply, and I know Ray and Curtis will surely feel blessed, too.
Your word choices, phraseology, and metaphor serve so very well in conveying the sweet beauty of the story, and not a forced or pretentious line or emotion anywhere … one to be proud of.

Simply a gorgeous piece straight from your heart, with such a fitting picture and presentation … kudos! ⁓ Richard : )

Yes 😊 And you'll get over the time, sometimes a little supports is helpful though. 😉
Wow ... this piece is beautiful ... I don't think there's a better way to describe it. I like how this piece conveys various themes such as the strength of a mother's love, the innocence of a child, the wonder of a night sky, the beauty of simplicity, the curiosity of a child ... you did a great job of blending those nuances together. Also, from a more technical standpoint, I loved your use of punctuation.

One minor critique: The picture doesn't seem genuine to me because of those spirals and squares on it. I think those were put there for copyright purposes. Their inclusion, in my opinion, really hinders the first impression of the piece.
