So I started writing when I was about 8, but then i wrote my first poem when i was in high school, so here is a glimpse of a few of them.
This poem was written while penny was giving birth.
Fair Faithful Friend
Ever thought about how it feels to have a friend?
Well, here’s a friend who’ll love you till the end!
She’s a four legged buddy,
To love you, she’s always ready.
Be it mid day or mid night, she’d always wait for me,
The happiest or saddest moment, at my side she’d always be!
She’d chase the bandits away
Becoming a better watchman day by day.
She’d play ball, to make me happy, even if she’s tired,
I’d feel, she’s the only one who was never hired!
She’d make me warm and cozy, even if I didn’t have a sweater,
With her warmth, I’d feel a sweater was never better!!
As days passed she wasn’t as excited as she was,
I guess, ‘Age’ was the cause,
Her food changed from a bowl to a cup
Yet waiting for me she’d never give up
She began banging against things,
Couldn’t recognize me, even after three blinks
She couldn’t hear me at the door,
I could see her whining to the core.
On this unusual day, the day she acted weird,
She spent the night under my bed, excited and unprepared
At dawn, I found her at the waiting for me,
As I went closer, I saw that it could never again be.
This poem was written for mother’s day 2012
She welcomed us onto this planet, with a smile on her face
After keeping us safe and warm in her case
We uttered her name the first
Until we grew up, us, she nursed
Indeed she was our first teacher
Before we went to any preacher,
She tolerated anything we did,
From us, the baddies she absolutely hid.
For us, she’d sacrifice anything
Even though sleepy, to comfort us, she would sing
She’s our only defender and protector on earth
No matter, if we are first or fourth
Be it animal or human, her love is forever pure
Even the deadliest wound, it would cure
There could be no one to replace her
This angel in human form called, Mother.
