My Mother

This poem I have written after my mother's death


1. Loss of Mother

Suffering we saw you bear with great grit

Know not we of your pain except to watch

the ever hovering graceless dark shadow

Tried we our best to get you well and hale

our humble efforts made you but to bear and grin

unsure we became, of our childish actions

With tears in our eyes we watched you fading

Holding our hands we stopped our hearts 

from breaking as all our efforts could not make you stay

Knowing well that you did  to each of us your best

we knelt before the God Almighty only to pray

and beg Him the blessings for your eternal rest
