Behind the humour,
She hides her fear
Of sending her daughter away.

Times have turned
Distance into a morphed
Fearful deity no one controls.

But let go she must
As a dream has to be fulfilled.
Half-heartedly if need be.

She masks her concern
And turns it into a smile.
Blotting out my pain.

If I could make this parting
Less painful and come home often
I’d be able to do that One Thing For Love.

PS: A quick poem for Mum as tomorrow I leave for Bengaluru. And thus ends Shreya Sudesh’s last College Summer Vacation.

The love of a daughter towards her Mother who unconditionally exists for her children.

  1. Aww.. When my mother left me in hostel she cried hard. Every time we used to talk on phone she used to behave strong but after that again she use to cry hard.. Moms are like this only..
