Her heart beat went fast;
As she peeps through the window;
Dim light of the street;
Silence of the dark night;
Was choking her soul.
Reminded her of the premonition;
She was suffering since morning;
The time her daughter left for outings.
The fear of a protective mother,
As her daughter is yet growing,
And mother is aware of today’s scary life.
The flashbacks of her raising appeared fast;
The courage gathered for raising her;
Struggle faced for going above family tradition;
The flashbacks just came across her eyes;
But has faith on her training, teaching.
Daughter is not yet home;
Time for arrival has already exceeded;
Mother’s hands began to vibrate;
While receiving the phone call.
She rushed to the destination;
She is devastated with a sight of a bus;
Daughter’s bus has met with an accident.
Chaos everywhere, passengers are injured.
But hears a weeping noise of daughter from a corner;
Motherly affection inspires to run to the noise;
Despite the gift of weak legs due to the age.
But…there is a sigh of relief in her,
As she sees the daughter crying safe with just a knee injury.
