My Mother My Guiding Light

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

This is a poem that I wrote, a poem for my mother with love.

Words cannot express how much I love my mom but still I have tried to write a poem from my heart.

My dear mother,

I do not find the words, I fear

To express, all that is deep within my heart

I LOVE YOU Mother

How much in words I cannot tell you

Words fail me when I try to describe you

Well, now I am trying with what little I can do

You held my hand you showed me the way

To stand up and fight and not run away

When I was deep in trouble you were always there

You held my hand and hugged me, to show you care

Your undying love

Words of wisdom and inspiration

Has guided me on

Has shown me the path to my destination

Without you mom

I would be lost and alone

Not knowing which way to go

Which way to turn

I love you mom

It is all because of you

I am here where I am

Having succeeded

And excelled in all that I can do

I can never repay

By words or deeds

What you have done for me

Mother

With great love indeed
