I CALL YOU MUMMY

Read Time:38 Second
Mummy Adeduntan

Though I curled not
In the warmth
Of your blessed womb,
Nor sucked Life’s juice
From your breasts,

I call you mummy!

Even though I rode not
On your back,
Nor fell asleep
In the safety
Of your arms,

I call you mummy!

Yours is the hand
That puts bread and meat
In the empty mouth
Of the offspring
Of another woman’s womb.

I call you mummy!

My soul can testify
That my heart’s beats
Sing a song.
And there,
In the lyrics thereof,

I call you mummy!

I pen this poem
With crystal gems
Falling, klop, klop,
From the wells of my eyes.
Let none ask why;

I call you mummy!

      Thank you Shian. She is actually the mother of a friend and she was like my own mother at a time when Life turned against me and my brother. May heaven bless her and her own children.

  1. Sharmishtha Basu – A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me @sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com, sermistabasu@gmail.com or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) mydomainpvt.wordpress.com (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- Agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com And Agnijaat.wordpress.com if you want fb you can go to my page facebook.com/sermistabasu, linkedin- linkedin.com/authorsharmishthabasu my email id sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com and sermistabasu@gmail.com I am in goodreads and completelynovel too http://www.goodreads.com/sharmishthabasu http://completelynovel.com/sharmishtha-basu http://amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
