O Mother ! : A Daughter’s Note By Meghna Roy
O Mother! I am rendered speechless today...
The very thought of penning down the beauty of our liaison
Curbs the flight of my imagination
For you are the epitome of boundless love
Whose existence begins where my comprehension fails...
You are close enough to touch yet,
So difficult and inscrutable is the aura you possess.
Every emotion of mine chooses to cry than to speak
For you are the one who have taught me
To express what I feel
To write as I meditate
And to understand what I see...
Discarding the language of the literate, the lettered and the educated,
You tutored me in the language of love undefiled,
when I came to the world untaught
How enchanting is your magnanimity,
Too sublime to express, too profound to deconstruct.
Mother! When days are weary, let us make a separate peace
Towards the Elysium adorned with innocent, unalloyed feelings let’s march
Leaving aside every reason of sorrow and anguish
With only one peaceful consolation in our hearts that,
I will love you beyond love
And you will love me beyond your living.
