A Poem Dedicated To Sridevi As MOM

Posted: February 27, 2018

Sridevi in Bollywood was a powerful force to reckon with – her drama, her hysterics, her comedy, her subtlety and not to forget her heavy Tamilian accent! It was a powerful concoction; and it all contributed to the amazing actress that she was.

Her death was a blow to me as it was to tons of her other ardent fans.

A poem dedicated to her on the last movie she left us with – MOM and to the mom she would have been…




Mother

Life without a Mother what would it be…

The sole corner of comfort in a room of darkness…no more…

The strong shoulder for tears and the warm hug of solace…no more…

A room full of laughter made just by you and her…no more…

Wanted and unwanted advice galore…no more…

Bundles of selflessness wrapped in love, anger or despair…no more…

One and only to endure all judgment and misjudgment…no more…

Warehouse of strength when none could be found…no more…

The guiding light in a world full of choices…no more…

True love, as true as it can be…no more…

The reason and core of one’s existence…no more…

When all seems to crumble under the weight of her loss

A sliver of her in us might pull us through

Where we thought we just could not…
