Sorry elPintor

Sorry elPintor


I just did something, that I almost always desist

By writing a poem on another poets list

Of comments that really should be about them

And what they’ve just written. I must make amends


So sorry ‘elPintor’ for rambling on, on your fine poem ‘Sexism’ all about Mums

My comment morphed from being about mums, to me, and being a lost only Son.


So here is my apology, heartfelt and true.  I have the utmost respect pray, I’ve not offended you.


I will post my comment here where it belongs…. My lullaby.

This the first time my heart opened seeing my following poem

About the only time my real Dad, visited my home.


I consider myself as one of the lucky ones
Because my friends, I had two mums.

One from birth, that I never knew
The other one watched me, as daily I grew

Later, as truth ultimatly transpired
After my birth mother, had recently expired

She came and told me her special 'pet' name
that my dad always called her... Yep! The very same.

Dad came knocking on my door, one fine summers day
“You don't know me”  He went on to say

Dad left me, feeling both confused, and dazed
As what I had just told him, he simply could not appraise.

“I know that you know, I never knew her name, I exposed

Her name was ‘Dorothy’ but you always called her Rose“

“How on earth could you possibly know that?" He continued looking more bemused.


“She came and told me Dad"  To him I enthused

Dad was convinced, this was all just a ruse.

I never saw either of them again, my Mum or my Dad.

I was 12yrs old at the time... Just a small lad.

I have never told a living soul this truth el,  apart from that is, to my loving wife.

Writing on  your post inspired me to write, this hidden secret surrounding my life.

Strange but true as they say.

btw. elPintor
I simply adore your poetry.

Thank you for all your work.  I wish you a Happy and healthy New Year.

Dear Po,
To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.

Really sad to know about your mother's demise.

Mother is a mother....whether she gives birth or she does your are definitely one lucky man to have two mothers.

May Allah be pleased with your parents and grant them maghfirah, and jannahtul firdaus as their home. Ameen?

No poem can dothe slightest justice in words to praise the lofty position parents hold in our life....still a great tribute..?
