The unnamed death

By: SNEHA AGGARWAL

The stars twinkle in the sky;

For her, it was in her lap.

She held it tightly with her bosom;

Hardly leaving any gap.

She jumped into the river of thoughts,

Forgetting the world around.

Emotions of motherhood,

Gave het feelings a certain ground.

Curiously, frantically, she was waiting for the day to come;

When she touched her ears near it's Heart, she was numb.

Repeatedly, she brought it close;

But couldn't feel air coming out of its nose.

Pleasure turned to shock;

She could not dress her child in a shirt or in the frock.
