Empty.... by Priya

Gazing out of the windowpane,
Your eyes wilt in pain.
Looking at the world pass by,
Yet.. seeing only your world stand by .

The mirth and merry the toddler once filled,
Still lingers in your eyes and air around the ears,
Fluttering feet’s tapping loud …in tantrum,
Fills our day with not a moment to spare.

You nurtured them well.. with care and concern,
You nourished them well.. with wisdom profound,
You taught them well… with the ways of world,
You wish them well.. with every whiff of wind.

Flying away from mother-Goose’s nest,
To build a nest and.. call it their own.
Farther how much ever they be in the world, wide,
Not farther than a thought .. for thought flies faster than wings.
