Other side

I have an other side. Another fleshy, meek side A side of love, care and warmth A side of tears, cries and whispers That side smiles, whines and exclaims Its raw and not puffed up.. The path to reach that side Is love and …only love.

So I just took her role in my life as granted and never expressed my love, care, respect and affection for which I am deeply regretting .

In fact, both my parents didn't wait for that, they both died much before the specified time I kept for honoring them. This pain of mine is an intense call to every child, to honor your father and mother, no matter how old you are, where you are, what situation you are in.... As the Bible urges us in Exodus 20:12, "Honor your father and your mother, that your day
