I have never remembered the specific date for mother’s or father’s day……as I do really think about my parents everyday. Ours is a volatile exchange almost always…..but that hasn’t created any bad feelings between us. I still worry and they still treat me as a two year old even though I am on threshold of forty! Once as a teenager I wrote a poem about my father….and my father had asked me then to write one for my mom too, but that time I couldn’t come up with one. I do put all virtues, the grit, determination and energy to work nonstop of my mother on a pedestal and I really mean it that I do not have that in me and I am not even half as competent as she is. This poem does not extol my mother but since the challenge was to use only five sentences about mother…..I could come up with this.
Dear Mother, there you are on a pedestal so high….. I could never be you, hard as I might try!! Yes I rebelled, have never been docile…… ‘Coz you see, i veil a heart so so fragile…. So what say….should we start….have a little heart to heart?
