Mummy You will Be Okay.

If things got expiry date, you're beyond best before
you cry deeply in your heart, yet you smile to us
when I heard of accident , I winced back in pain
mummy you will be okay.

You groaned in pain, no one covered your wounds
if I were only a bird, to fly and be with you
distance separate us, our heartbeat goes the same

I kneel down to pray, God to keep you mummy
your smile to us, it's a magnet that keeps us
One day with us, it's more years for us.

It's too heavy for me, men in white clothes surrounds you
your body covered with bandages, you no longer raise your head.
My heart grows cold, no hopes left for me.

You feel my presence, blood's thicker than water
you struggle to get up, still a good soldier
I thought you're no more, men sighs with relief stethoscopes around their necks

Hold my hands mummy, this place isn't for you
good soldiers still gets up, to go back to base
all pain to fade away, spasms of joy to fill our heart.

About this poem

I decided to write this poem not just in words but in love to my mother who got involved in a road accident to give her hope and just to let her know that she's all that matters in my life.
