Araafat: the mountain of light

My little boy I know not what I can do for you

As not much of life is in my control.

But, there is something that I can give you, always

Without fail, without having to explain to anyone;

In all your innocence and faith, you know what that something is:

My unending love for you.

Every time you run to me and give me a hug,

I feel an overflowing of all that is true and beautiful.

In my love for you my faith has grown

And I know that you will be taken care of by Him

Who has sent you to me.

My little boy, my bundle of joy,

Live long, be happy and true.

The only relation I believe which is void of any expectation in return and which is completely selfless is a mother's love for her child, you truly expressed it in words..I had told you before I am bad at poem and i wonder where from you get those words !!! Very touching :-)

Ayesha Parveen said...

Hi Mustaf and Sana!

Thanks a lot for your highly appreciative comments :)

I personally believe that the quality and depth of love depends on the person who loves, and not on the type of love. There can be pure, unselfish love even between spouses or friends or any other relationship.

Not all mothers (or fathers) are loving..there are women who become pregnant due to irresponsible behaviour and then abort the unborn child only because she considers it a burden!

Such is life..full of paradoxes and extremes.

Best wishes :)
