APJ Abdul kalam poem

                       My Mother
Sea waves, golden sand, pilgrims' faith,
Rameswaram Mosque Street, all merge into one,
My Mother!
You come to me like haven's caring arms.
I remember the war days when life was challenge and toil.....
Miles to walk, hours before sunrise,
Walking to take lessons from the saintly teacher near the temple.
Again miles to the Arab teaching school,
Climb sandy hills to Railway Station Road,
Collect, distribute newspaper to temple citizens,
Few hours after sunrise, going to school.
Evening, business time before study at night.
All this pain of a young boy,
My mother you transformed into pois strenght
With kneeling and bowing five times
For the grace of Almight only, My Mother.
Your strong piety is your children's strenght,
You always shared your best with whoever needed the most,
You always gave, and gave with faith in him.
I still remember the day when I was ten,
Sleeping on your lap to the envy of my elder brothers and sisters
It was full moon night, my world only you knew
Mother! My Mother!
When at midnight I woke with tears falling on my knee
You knew the pain of your child, my mother.  
Your caring hands, tenderly removing the pain
Your love, your care, your faith gave me strenght
To face the world without fear and with His strenght
We will meet again on the great judgement Day, My Mother!
