English Poetry

Who is the nearest and the dearest of all?

She is the Mother,

The Mother of all.

Who bore Christ?

Who nursed Mohammed?

Who reared Buddha?

Who taught Gandhi?

She is the Mother,

The Mother of all.

Who is the embodiment

Of hope, trust and comfort;

Of tolerance and compassion;

And forgiveness above all?

She is the Mother,

The Mother of all.

Potential like the sun- sustainer of all,

Perennial like the earth – nourisher of all;

Perpetual like the cosmos- mentor of all,

Pervasive like the sky – protector of all.

She is greater than the greatest of all,

She is mightier than the mightiest of all.

Who is the nearest and the dearest of all?

She is the Mother,

The Mother of all;

Love Her, serve Her, honour Her,

For the worship of the Mother,

Is the worship of God.

Kusum

    Very beautiful poem and a lovely ode
    Liked immensely
    Mother is what God Himself made his abode
    Mother is an exact example of personified God
    Caring for, loving & devotion to mother is prayer to God

    Hearty Kudos for the beautiful poem

  2. Hi Kusum,
    A straight forward paean to Mother , with many running metaphors .
    Yes, who can love unconditionally but the mother and who can nourish with care but the mother ?. Mother –the perennial life force
    born to play many roles but primarily that of the nurturer.
