After a tiring journey, you reached here
only to find that your son wasn’t near.
I’m sure you must have felt bad.
And oh I know, what I did was sad.
We spent time, going here and there.
I was too silent, you were soon aware.
‘Is everything fine?’ you asked in vain.
I never opened up, I hid my pain.
I wish I were able to, open my heart
and explain to you, my life’s sad part.
Now that you are gone, away once more,
I miss your love, the only love that’s pure.
