To the Moon and back… – Poem by Devika Parekh




The one person that,
I look forward to in hardships,
I not only love her,
But is the one I worship

My role model,
My pride
My desire to live for,
And my sole reason to die

How I wish, I could,
Be like her
Make her happy,
And make her proud

I stand speechless
In front of her
Yet she finds my pain
Lost in my smile

Her touch has a,
Healing therapy
Her silence is
My nightmare

I love you, my mom,
To the moon and back…
