Saw a shooting star flash across the sky
Made a wish she should not die
Felt a chill run up my spine
My wish would surely come true tonight
'Hang on for some more time, Mother of mine'.
Felt a quiver pass through our hands entwined
To my pleas responded; spirits sky rocketed
Prayers had borne fruit; she opened her eyes
From deep coma woke up; daughter recognized
Serene face again broke into an angelic smile
Tears of joy rolled down cheeks
Clung together, hugged and kissed
Heard pelted of rain on window panes
Tear stained pillow clung to chest
Reality struck; years ago was laid to rest.
