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.
