Death Bed

Death Bed

1 min 157 1 min 157

Helpless with fear about the fate,

I touched her hot burning head.

Tears then rolled and my voice broke,

My speech was barred into a choke.


" I am scared", mom moaned in pain,

Tumour has spread in my brain.

Can't be treated , can't be cured,

All in vain, death for sure.


" My child for me please don't cry",

Before I sleep just say Goodbye.

I bent and took her in my arms,

And held her shivering hand in calm,


For some time I was silent with sorrow,

What's to say she has no tomorrow.

When midnight came she stirred in pain,

With nervous hands I felt her vein,


The night was slow , dark and cold,

By this time I could barely hold.

The only sound was her heavy breath,

After that with death she met,


On her chest I put my ear,

A sign of life, I hoped to hear.

But cold and dead there she lay,

All the pain had left her way.


I kept there sitting as hard as stone,

With wounds so deep ,

I could not mourn.
