"MY MOTHER-5 ମୋ ବୋଉ Present too much to bear Future not in vision Past is my only resort Where lies the beauty of your touch My life and love with all its colours My mother! come near Take me in your lap Touch me, touch my body and mind Tell me a story, I will be in your land of wonder Don't leave me alone, be with me I want to bathe in your love once more I was told When I was a kid of some months and years In one side was Yama, Lord of death On the other side you my loving mother The tug of war was for years You made your days and nights speak Without caring for your bare needs The Lord of death had to run away And your unmatched love and commitment Brought me safe from the jaws of death. You were on medicine and surgery With an ailing heart and dwindling brain You had been fighting against multiple ailments For twenty seven years You fought like a lioness against the tigress With equal ease and smile on lips In your last battle For the first time I was not with you Is it the reason my maa For which you had given up And the Lord of death got the better of you?

MY MOTHER-5

                      ମୋ ବୋଉ

Present too much to bear
Future not in vision 
Past is my only resort 
Where lies the beauty of your touch 
My life and love with all its colours 

My mother! come near
Take me in your lap
Touch me, touch my body and mind
Tell me a story, I will  be in your land of wonder 
Don't leave me alone, be with me 
I want to  bathe in your love once more

I was told 
When I was a kid of some months and years 
In one side was Yama, Lord of death
On the other side you my loving mother
The tug of war was for years
You made your days and nights speak 
Without caring for your bare needs
The Lord of death had to run away 
And your unmatched love and commitment 
Brought me safe from the jaws of death.

You were on medicine and surgery
With an ailing heart and dwindling brain
You had been fighting against multiple ailments
For twenty seven years 
You fought like a lioness against the tigress 
With equal ease and smile on lips
In your last battle 
For the first time I was not with you
Is it the reason my maa 
For which you had  given up
And the Lord of death got the better of you?

"MY MOTHER-4 ମୋ ବୋଉ When I was trying to sleep You were fighting for your last breath No one of your own was with you It was for you a lone battle in the ICU I ask myself why a mother gives birth And for kids lives her whole life with mirth When her kids remain engrossed in their world Hardly find will and time to payback Your blood pressure was fluctuating You were sinking in the ICU Your senses must be searching for your kids Unfortunately, none of them was around With little efforts we all five Could have been there Feeling your beats and pulse to the last Despite stringent regulations and corona scare I know if I would have been ill You would have never left me alone Whatever may be the situation Nothing could have stopped you From being with your blood That is why you are a mother And I am your unworthy son All along you were surrounded with Everything one needs That is no excuse You were more in need of your kids And most of us were away from you We could only meet in months Being engaged in our own needs. Always found an excuse Though we could have met At least once in a fortnight or month Life never gives a second chance I may get everything I wish But I can not get you back Even at the cost of me and my fortune You may not be with me But in the journey of life I will not be lonely Always carry you with me Silently enduring the days remaining Smruti Ranjan Mohanty"

MY MOTHER-4

                  ମୋ ବୋଉ

When I was trying to sleep
You were fighting for your last breath 
No one of your own was with you
It was for you a lone battle in the ICU
I ask myself why a mother gives birth
And for kids lives her whole life with mirth
When her kids remain engrossed in their world
Hardly find will and time to payback 

Your blood pressure was fluctuating
You were sinking in the ICU
Your senses must be searching for your kids
Unfortunately, none of them was around
With little efforts we all five 
Could have been there
Feeling your beats and pulse to the last
Despite stringent regulations and corona scare

I know if I would have been ill
You would have never left me alone
Whatever may be the situation
Nothing could have stopped you
From being with your blood 
That is why you are a mother
And I am your unworthy son

All along you were surrounded with
Everything one needs
That is no excuse 
You were more in need of your kids
And most of us were away from you
We could only meet in months
Being engaged in our own needs.
Always found an excuse
Though we could have met 
At least once in a fortnight or month

Life never gives a second chance
I may get everything I wish 
But I can not get you back
Even at the cost of me and my fortune
You may not be with me 
But in  the journey of life
I will  not be lonely
Always carry you with me
Silently enduring the days remaining

Smruti Ranjan Mohanty

MY MOTHER-4

ମୋ ବୋଉ

When I was trying to sleep
You were fighting for your last breath
No one of your own was with you
It was for you a lone battle in the ICU

"MY MOTHER-2 ମୋ ବୋଉ Minutes and hours have passed Since you left this world Where you were my mother I was your erring son The situation has not changed The same darkness all over No trace of the sun as yet When I look at your room Where you recited and let us listen to Most of the mythologies including The epics Ramayan and Mahabharat Among your listeners I am probably the lone survivor I see that empty cot Where we had shared so much time So much of love, life and smile Where you used to sit and sleep Wherefrom you shower on all of us Your love and affection Guidance and concern Since the last five and a half years You were confined to bed But you were always lively And full of grace When l met you last I could never think Your days were numbered And I will lose you, My heaven on earth forever Since months I was feeling restless I used to get up from sleep And feel a sad melancholy deep within A fear constantly haunted me As if I was going to lose something precious Something very special, very different Something more than me and my life Nothing can be as precious as you, my mother My heart and soul, life and breath My earth below and sky over Now It is all over My relationship with you for years Ended in ashes and smokes Tell me! how can I live The rest of my life When there is no you, my mother?

MY MOTHER-2

         ମୋ ବୋଉ 

Minutes and hours  have passed 
Since you left this world
Where you were my mother
I was your erring son
The situation has not changed 
The same darkness all over
No trace of the sun as yet 

When I look at your room 
Where you recited and let us listen to 
Most of the mythologies including 
The epics Ramayan and Mahabharat 
Among your listeners 
I am probably the lone survivor 
I see that empty cot
Where we had shared so much time
So much of love, life and smile 
Where you used to sit and sleep 
Wherefrom you shower on all of us 
Your love and affection 
Guidance and concern 

Since the last five and a half years
You were confined to bed
But you were always lively 
And full of grace
When l met you last 
I could never think
Your days were numbered
And I will lose you,
My heaven on earth  forever 

Since months
I was feeling restless 
I used to get up from sleep 
And feel a sad melancholy deep within 
A fear constantly haunted me
As if I was going to lose something precious 
Something very special, very different 
Something more than me and my life 
Nothing can be as precious as you, my mother
My heart and soul, life and breath 
My earth below and sky over

Now It is all over
My relationship with you for years
Ended in ashes and smokes 
Tell me! how can I live
The rest of my life 
When there is no you, my mother?

ମୋ ବୋଉ

Minutes and hours have passed
Since you left this world
Where you were my mother
I was your erring son

"MY MOTHER-1 ମୋ ବୋଉ In your funeral pyre Burning my whole world My love and tears, wishes and ambitions My past, present and future The dreams and dramas We shared over the years When you closed your eyes I lost my vision When you lost your ears I lost my hearing When you lost your brain I lost my reasoning The eyes that do not see you The ears which do not hear you The senses which do not feel you Of what use are these? Now I understand What it means being truly orphaned Losing both the earth and sky In between which I have been all along I am up against reality None in front none in the back None to my right none to the left Life is silently walking on fire If you can see See in your absence how Sad and pathetic life is How poor I have come In few hours I have become the most Unfortunate man on earth A begar in fact I am speechless The poor navigator In the boisterous sea Silently watching the boat Sinking in the deep-sea And I am going deep down In the dark abyss. Never thought of a life without you How to reconcile to the reality That you are no more No more with my smile and tears Happiness and sorrow You are in my heart But I am miles away from you Tell me! how can I bridge up the gap And come near? Smruti Ranjan Mohanty"

MY MOTHER-1

   ମୋ ବୋଉ 

In your funeral pyre
Burning my whole world 
My love and tears, wishes and ambitions
My past, present and future 
The dreams and dramas 
We shared over the years

When you closed your eyes
I lost my vision 
When you lost your ears
I lost my hearing 
When you lost your brain
I lost my reasoning 
The eyes that do not see you
The ears which do not hear you
The senses which do not feel you
Of what use are these?

Now I understand
What it means being truly orphaned 
Losing both the earth and sky 
In between which I have been all along
I am up against reality 
None in front none in the back 
None to my right none to the left
Life is silently  walking on fire

If you can see
See in your absence how
Sad and pathetic life is
How poor I have come
In few hours
I have become the most 
Unfortunate man on earth
A begar in fact 

I am speechless
The poor navigator 
In the boisterous sea 
Silently watching the boat 
Sinking in the deep-sea
And I am going deep down 
In the dark abyss.

Never thought of a life without you
How to reconcile to the reality
That you are no more 
No more with my smile and tears
Happiness and sorrow
You are in my heart
But I am miles away from you
Tell me! how can I bridge up the gap
And come near?

Smruti Ranjan Mohanty

MY MOTHER-1

ମୋ ବୋଉ

In your funeral pyre
Burning my whole world
My love and tears, wishes and ambitions
My past, present and future

"मेरी दुआ A LOOK AT LIFE-114 BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY Bliss When ego and interest, pride and vanity, Selfishness and jealousy, hide and seek, Mine and thine, falsehood and priority Come in between, What remains is not friendship. Friendship is Love and reciprocation Truth and concern A will to live and die for each other A commitment to stand by the other Whatever may be the situation Friendship is miles away From everything pseudo and negative Treachery and hypocrisy, lie and flattery Blessed is one who has the blessing Of a friend in his life.

मेरी दुआ  A LOOK AT LIFE-114
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

            Bliss 

When ego and interest, pride and vanity,
Selfishness and jealousy, hide and seek,
Mine and thine, falsehood and priority 
Come in between, 
What remains is not friendship.

Friendship is
Love and reciprocation 
Truth and concern 
A will to live and die for each other
A commitment to stand by the other 
Whatever may be the situation 

Friendship is miles away
From everything pseudo and negative 
Treachery and hypocrisy, lie and flattery 
Blessed is one who has the blessing
Of a friend in his life.
Yes blessed is he
Who has found the  heaven on earth
