There she lay, her slender body
A smile that spoke of paradise,
Eyes that radiated affection-
A God’s face in disguise
Now just sat on her feeble body
Clutched in pain.
With every groan, a couple of tears
And every drop, my nose did twitch
Cold, she considered. Beads they were.
As I sat there stroking her agonizing head
My ailing mother, woke up from her stupor
And said “You look so unwell, my child.”
