Depleted with work
Decides to lie down
Resolves to do the rest later
Has lost the swiftness
But body needed rest
Consoles herself due to age…
But hears a crying sound from upstairs
Noone at home, but how to mount???
Part of her crank, no longer serves well
Due to pain on the knee, is in fret…
Resolves to climb, holds the strands of ladder
Begins to crawl like a child
With much scuffle and consolation
Finally reaches the destination.
Perspiring lot, yet begins with lullaby
Humming in between
Some lyrics of the song forgotten
She glimmers after a while
As the granddaughter fell asleep.
She now reminisces her battle minutes ago
Feels granddaughter was a genie to her !!!!
