Mother, You're Getting Older

Mother, You're Getting Older

A Poem by Omikron

Mother
You're getting older
I'm getting older too.
Though your beauty is still unmatched
And mine has just hatched
I am becoming a version of you.

Mother
You're getting older
I am still clinging on to you
Endlessly craving your touch
Your advice, your wisdom, so much
Learning to grow as you grew.

Mother
You're getting older
I am stealing your youth.
Slowly you fade, while I thrive
Slowly you die, while I'm becoming alive
What an ugly and bitter truth.

Mother
You're getting older
It pains me to see.
I live in the fast lane
Crying over weight gain
And I drink my sorrows as tea.

Mother
You're getting older
And I am getting afraid.
I need to complete my quest
To gift you the world and the rest
To be the best you've ever made. 

Mother
You're getting older
I'm getting older too.
One day, at the break of dawn
You will be gone
And a part of me will be gone with you.

I really enjoyed reading this poem of yours. It speaks of inherent legacy between child and mother. Living up to the hopes and dreams of our parents in order to reflect a better version of themselves. Wonderfully written thank you for sharing.
