To My Parents - Poem

Updated on August 29, 2017

Radhika loves writing poems. She can scribble some spontaneously, whereas some of them are weaved with much care and thought.

Beholding me in your lap

Feeding with your sweet fluid

Patting my head with love

You welcomed me to this wonderland;


You learned to sing those lullabies

You delighted me with sweet stories

You filled my life with lots of joys

Oh! my lovey-dovey parents!!


When I tried to stand on my legs

Your unseen active hands all around

Watched and waved to protect me out

Not to fall and get wounded;


You showed me the daffodils

Took me near the chirping birds

To let me listen and talk to them

And dance along-with the mild-blowing wind;


You taught me to read and write

With sweet voice and helping hands

Now that I’m grown up so big

Should I forget those past pretty days?


I’ll take care of your tender hands

Show you the way to lead your life

Not by sending to old-aged homes

But in my home of love and light!!

      Parent is a Latin word meaning 'bringing forth '. Our parents brought us forth and brought us up so well, so now is our turn to take care of them with all love and affection. Your poem speaks of that love and has a great message to the world. Voted up.

      So beautiful! Some times I think we should combine Mother's Day and Father's Day and call it Parent's Day!

      Radhika, this is a beautiful poem. A great tribute to one's parents. I've always maintained that we must take care of our aged and frail parents when they need us most - in old age. We owe our existence and self worth to our parents and this is the least we can do for them.

      Great poem. shared and voted up.

      Yes, it's because of our parents that we've reached up to here. We should treat them in the way we treat our children. There is a saying in Sanskrit: "Matha Pitha Guru Daivam" meaning mother, father and teacher are gods. Thanks for the nice compliment, for the vote and for the share.

      More people should think like you do. Sometimes it can't be helped, but far too often older people are simply "ware-housed" in nursing homes because their children can't be bothered with caring for them as they age. We owe much to our parents or the people who took care of us when we were young and helpless. Your poem is a shining example of payment in kind. Sharing this with others and voted up and beautiful.
