Microblog Mondays – Tears

At the Railway Station
The train at the platform
Loaded the luggage or the heart
Feels so heavy

I hug her so tight – to remember later
I try to act normal
I do this every semester, I tell myself
And I succeeded too…

Until I saw another one like me
Who was holding back tears…
What do I care for now ?
I let the tears roll by my cheeks…

Felt the bonding with that mother
Her son looked perplexed
The children are clueless
To the emotions that a mother holds.

    Children are clueless, like we were when our moms teared up. Some day they’ll feel the tug too and at that moment, they will know what you felt.
    Hugs to you.

      Those unsaid words need to be spoken Bikram. Make that call and talk to your dad…
      We need to pamper our parents as much as possible, for all the love they showed us when we were born 🙂

    I love this poem. And I will remember it when I’m in this place one day. I’m already dreading it and it’s years away.
