Words of solace

All in vain.

For a mother

Who lost a child.

She consoles herself

With memories for a while.

A smile on her face and

Tears in her eyes.

She lost harmony of her life.

Words of solace

Cannot lessen the pain.

From dawn to dusk

She impatiently waits for her child to come.

She never forgets the day

When she last met him

The bond between them.

She knows martyrs never die

But she wants her child to live a life.

Words of solace

Never describe the misery,

The incident caused.

Each day, every year

While working in the kitchen

Or sleeping on a bed.

She has been missing her child

Till her last breath.

When souls depart and

Life ends
