A Song To My Mother

MOTHER DEAR, mother dear,
WILL YOU HEAR, will you hear?
MY LAMENT, my lament;
O CLEMENT, o clement!

I WOULD SAY, I would say,
HAPPY DAY, happy day;
YOUR GREAT LOVE, your great love;
SHOW’D ME THOU, show’d me thou.

I JUST PRAY, I just pray;
GOD MUST SAY, god must say,
YOU TO LIVE, you to live,
LONG LIFE GIVE, long life give.

HOW MUCH CARE, how much care?
AND LOVE RARE, and love rare,
YOU GAVE ME, you gave me,
FOR NO FEE, for no fee!


dedicated to my beloved mother Mrs.Stella Thangamarie
wife of Mr.A.T.Antoniswami M.A., L.T., (late) Coimbatore, T.N.
