This sonnet is a tribute to my deceased mother, Sen, and to all the parents who love their children.


The Love of a Parent

Who questions the great love of a Parent
(whose love is here and present to the end
for caring and for giving to attend
to ev'ry child's welfare and contentment)?
A Parent's love is greater in extent
than infinite: it's a truth to commend,
a law (that one cannot break or transcend),—
a tenet of all life that's permanent.
A Parent's the one who watches and prays
for their child's safety and health all day long
so that they may grow up and thrive always
and become wise and may know right from wrong.
A Parent's love's by far the supreme love,
a child's right that God set up from above.

Nicely done. Some people say nothing is eternal, but I think a parent's love is.

I like the poem. I would like a poem that takes a deeper look into the parent-child relationship. I would love to hear you take this topic further
