I am, Mother, I am ...

A Dedication to my Mother on Her 2nd Death Anniversary

I am your Sky, Mother, I am Your Sky.

I am Your vast blue ocean of Sky.

I am Your glowing Moon, Mother true.

My golden orb and iridescent lustre, all for You.

Mother, I am Your twinkling Stars, You play

And dance with me, across the firmament

Of distant galaxies.

I am you Sun, Mother; I am your Sun,

From the celestial spheres my warmth descends,

Singing Your song of Summer; giving joy

To many a noble and searching heart.

I nourish fields and gladden the meadows,

As they dance to Your zephyrs, and listen

To the cadences of the larks in flight.

I am Your Child, Mother, I am Your Child.

My breath in You, evokes

Your spirit of sacrifice and matchless love.

I am Your Wife divine, o Mother of Truth.

I stir in others, Your infinite beauty, charm and poise

To ever-transcending horizons.

I am Your Religions, o Mother sweet,

So many branches, seemingly humming a different tune,

Yet eventually coming home to Thee.

I am Your green pastures; the heavenly nymphs

That stir splendour and magnificence within the Soul,

Mother, I am Your arid smoke; Your pain in my adversity,

And Your sorrows which sow the golden fruits of my tomorrows.

Mother, I am Your All. Bathe me in Your Love-Delight,

And remind me of my Eternal Home. – Manatita 10th August, 2013. Copyrighted

Mother, Thou Great Sacrifice
