A Mother's Reluctance

By Angeline Vaisika. P

From the day it was sown,

Till this day in her arms

Never let it down,

Or near any worms.

An instant or hours

Never left its side.

Did not accept flowers

Because she was afraid.

Protected from harsh sunlight

Keeping cool and calm,

Kissed it good night

And whispered the Psalm.

Never let any visitors

Wearing black,

Or any spectators

Scared they would hijack.

She did not eat,

As it neither did

Her mind filled like on concrete,

Concentrated as acid.

Drifting away, visualizing

It walking on feet

Not accepting,

It had no heartbeat.
