I'm Coming Home Mother-Terza Rima


I wonder what you would say
The moment you will see me
Guess you’ll embrace me and cry

I am just thinking how it would be
As soon I enter that familiar door
Surely, you will greet me with glee

I have been from far away shore
Two years was not easy to bear
Without that sweet smile of yours

And so now, I’m almost there
I could imagine your misty eyes
That is, if you were alive, mother

Harder it gets, no matter how I try
Accept that you’re forever gone away

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

What a beautiful poem...
I guess... it should be an expression of longing for the beloved mom who was gone forever...
So touch...
Thanks.

Poignant! There’s a twist in the last lines, which leaves a pain. Home coming; i empathize the emotions that you have scribbled here. It touches the depths!

Oh this poem is beautiful and sad....I was reading along, happy that you would be seeing your mother's face. So sad to know she has gone ahead...........but still firmly in your heart. A very lovely poem and tribute to your mother.

@Eileen thanks, If there is someone in my life that have made me who I am, it's my mother.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
