To Write A Poem/ Is To Have Hope

TO WRITE A POEM/ IS TO HAVE HOPE

To write a poem
Is to have Hope,
Even if only for the poem-
When I lose hope completely
I will write no more poems.

your mother's blessings is with you.the way you loved and respected your mother is always appriciated.
This is great, it touches hearts and brings tears to eyes, I pray, May God bless your Mom and all mothers passed away. They are not repeatable.
I have read this poem before but had to come back and read it again. My mother also passed away at a young age, and your poem helps remind me of her. Thank you so much for your talent and for sharing!
I loved the way you called me ‘Geeta', Calling me again and again Till your last breath, As if you were chanting a Mantra, Or a song that chimed with the cool breath of a scented breeze! You are exception in poetic world...thanks
Who does not remember a mother, alive or no more? But very few can with such eloquent poetry. Thanks for sharing.
