O Mother of a Son

do I see you celebrating there?

The birth of your pride, your prize, your heir

 

O Mother of a Son

is that derision I see?

Each time you look at a woman who has birthed a She

 

O Mother of a Son

do you wonder if you love him enough?

Even though at the sight of him you choke up with pride and emotions run amok

 

O Mother of a Son

are you teaching him all that he needs to know?

Honour, respect, loyalty and things that will make him into a fine man grow

 

O Mother of a Son

are you loosening your apron strings?

As his heart gets attached to another’s, and you feel the sting

 

O Mother of a Son

have you taught him to belong?

To a She who must become part of a We, forgetting herself along

 

O Mother of a Son

do you still love him the same?

Even though he now responds to another one’s name

 

O Mother of a Son

do you use your wiles?

To pull him back and shatter his world with your skilled guile

 

O Mother of a Son

when will you see

He is your happiness, just as his happiness is she

 

O Mother of a Son

Just let him go

He will always be yours, and you the only Mother he knows.

  1. Beautiful poem Mayuri. The emotions and the feelings every mom and son need to understand.

  2. A mother has to learn to let go, whether she has a son or a daughter. She needn’t feel threatened with someone else’s inclusion is her son’s life.
    Loved this poem, M.

  3. Love each and every word of this M, what a beautiful poem. These are such true words and hold value for everyone who is part of this relationship.
    O Mother of Son! Love it.

  4. Simply too good ! Loved it. So beautiful use of words:
    O Mother of a Son
    are you loosening your apron strings?
    As his heart gets attached to another’s, and you feel the sting.

    Stay blessed.

  5. Beautiful is the word for this poem. You have put all the feelings and emotions of a mother in very few words. it touched my heart.

  6. beautifully written. And sadly, realistic too. Far too many relations I see fail because of needless interference by the parent. I figured it was a tv serial stereotype but sadly, no

    1. Roshan, fiction is always inspired by fact:) Thanks for reading.

  7. Beautifuly said, Mayuri! You’ve captured the emotions straight from the heart!
