A little prayer for my mother

All my life,

In day and night,

I try to collect the words

To express my love;

But the page remains white

And all words seems quite

With a question in their eyes

How can you write?

In respect of her dignity!



Ah! How hollow, withered and pail

Are all these words

Which I express for your spring like love.


No, word is able to hold the burden of pain;

Which you bear; to bring me in this world.


No word of pain is so strong;

To express the pain of a sleepless night,

which you spent thousands;

To keep me alive.


No, heart is able to suck the pain of life

But that is only yours

Which provide shelter in the rain of agonies.


And In turmoil’s

When I deposited all my pains

In your heart’s bank,

The purity of your prayers

Touches the skies

And God always blessed me

For which I do not deserve.



All words of thanks,

Are unable to say thanks,

For this Shadow of Allah



Oh! My mother

How lucky I am.

Even, if I live hundred years

On this earth,

I can’t give you anything

How unlucky I am


But



My heart always said,

A little prayer for you

To God,

Who loves me,

More than seventy mothers,

Oh God! My Gracious God

Lives her long with health and happiness

And gives her eternity;

in this world and here after. Amen---


Ama,

All my life,

In day and night,

I pray and, I will always pray.

With the words, and prayers

which you taught me.


With love Asma iftikhar

Beautiful poem Asma. Mothers go through so much pain to bring us up. No amount of love for them can compensate for their selfless love and sacrifice.

Voted up & beautiful.
