AUDACITY OF A MOTHER




Every day is a mother's day


mother's day

  A single cell to a foetus,
Life forming in her uterus
Brightened her days,
As morning sun rays
Her face glows,
As moonlit river flows

First kick,First movement,
Treasured every moment
9 months as vital organ of body,
Taking his first breathe,
Child was ready

Painful labor, Nervous tremor,
Hearing his cries,
Tears welled up in her eyes
Baby in her arms,
Exhilaration,emotion,
How beautiful is this notion!!!

Touch soothing,
Eyes twinkling,
Voice babbling

News changed her existence,
Nothing else, Only Silence!!!
IT CAN'T BE TRUE,
HOW CAN IT BE?
Her small little angel,
Diagnosed having LEUKEMIA.
Ears longing to hear "MUMMY",
Sweetheart under painful chemotherapy.

Mind sighing as a wave,
Motherhood-made her brave
Salute to her courage,
& All the Smiles,
SMILE...that NEVER REACHED HER EYES!


P.S.As an Intern when I was posted in pediatrics ward, all the eagerness to learn something new and more...couldn't ignore all these cute little children suffering from Leukemia (cancer of blood-forming cells in the bone marrow)...their innocence & sweetness...moreover the love & strength of a mother...looking after her child...I still remember the anxious questions of a mother whether her child will lead a normal life?....after every 2-3 months the child has to be admitted for the chemotherapy cycle or treating the recurrent infections.....even through all these...A MOTHER NEVER SHOWS TIREDNESS...HER EYES REFLECTS THE HIDDEN EMOTIONS...But one can't stand to look into the eyes which shows so much courage.
I think AUDACITY is the only word for her expressions!

  3. Beautiful dear. The P.S. you have written really got my eyes to warm up with hint of tears. I am so happy that we have so beautiful people for doctors. You can feel their pain so .... so much like your own. God bless you dear. Always there for a cause. Count me in if ever there is something in which I can help or volunteer. I will feel that I am lucky.

    Take care, and keep up the beautiful work. You have a beautiful mind :)

  6. Wonderful story in the poem. Somehow, a mother can never forget what she lost. It is a wound that seldom heals. Even another baby wont heal the wound.
