    When the morning rays
    Glow golden in horizon
    Somewhere in a muddy pond
    A beautiful flower would bloom

    When the gentle breeze
    Carry the clouds away
    Somewhere in the sky
    A gentle drizzle will fall

    When the stars brighten
    The moonlit Night sky
    Somewhere on the shore
    Waves will dance with glee

    Let the fragrance of the flower
    Remind you of her sweet smell
    Let the Gentle drizzle with a breeze
    Remind you of her caring heart
    Let the Gushing waters of the waves
    Remind you of her unconditional love

    As she returns to nature
    Leaving her heart and soul In you
    Let not she be long forgotten
    As all that she loved around her
    Will still love you as she did ...

    Written to myself in memory of HER

    Beautiful imagery and thoughts, @jskls.

    We take all the wonders of nature and the unconditional love for granted. Every now and then we need to pause and make a conscious effort to appreciate these heavenly gifts and count our blessings. Your poetry helps us to do that.:)

    Yes. This beautiful nature is a God gift to human being & all creatures bt human beings ruin its beauty for his selfishness n greed. I think now nature is taking it's revenge in the form of calamities. Its time to be aware.

    Thanks Geetha. I had written in a totally different perspective and still I was surprised to see another meaning to my own lines. Thanks for teaching me new meaning. Of course we all need to pause and count our blessings at every stage.

    my theme for this poem was a mother communicates this to her daughter assuring her that though she left this world she is there in nature that surrounds her daughter. Nature would love the daughter as a mother.
