Poet Hussain Manawer, who refers to himself as The Original Mummy’s Boy, was invited onto Good Morning Britain to discuss his new poetry book. When hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard asked Hussain to read a piece to ITV viewers, he chose to share a powerful poem about losing his mother. Scores of viewers were brought to tears by the “beautiful” poem which resonated with them.

Hussain was interviewed about his book Life is Sad and Beautiful by Susanna and Ben, who were both keen to hear some of his work.

The poet was keen to read a particular poem about his mother’s death which moved many viewers.

One particularly touching line he read said: “When no one’s looking, throw me down a white rose. And if it lands in my lap my theory will be true, mum. Heaven does have a balcony.”

Danny Denay took to Twitter following Hussain’s segment, commenting: “Caught me off guard, [so] impactful. Well done son.”

Angela Coulter added: “Your poem made me cry. My mum had a stroke, I lost a lot of her. I am still grateful for what I still have. I am very close to her. I am so sorry to learn about your mum and I am sure she is proud of you and looking down. God bless.”
