Mother,

Mother,

I don’t remember your face,
The warmth of your heart
Nor your smile.
So I won’t even speak
Of the taste of your milk.

A dated photo is all I was shown
So I lamented 
Having missed love
From such a beauty.

Now I am not whole
For I don’t know motherly love,
Though I yearn for it everyday
I see many play with it day by day.
